  26. What is RSS?
    RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary.
    It is a web page with a .xml file type that can be subscribed to and read by a newsreader (aggregator). The aggregator will find the new content and display it when it becomes available.
    Newsreaders (sometimes called aggregators) are very easy to find and use (stand alone applications or through a web browser).
    In essence, it is content that comes to you, instead of having to search for it. It will save you an infinite amount of time.

    Social Bookmarking
  126. Activity
    MISSION
    Sign up for your own account.
    Install the two buttons in your browser.
    Surf the web and find at least two (2) sites you want to bookmark.
    Add them to your delicious bookmarks by clicking the “Tag” button and then enter the title, description and tags (optional but recommended).
  127. Social Bookmarking For Learning
    Great for groups researching a topic together or a lecturer that wants to share great websites they have found.
    Others can subscribe to your bookmarks or individual tags and receive them whenever the publisher adds a new bookmark.
    Create working bibliographies for projects by ensuring they share a common tag.
    Build lists of resources with fellow students/ teachers (decide on common tags first).
    Create a network with friends or fellow club members with whom you share an interest.
    Spend a few minutes planning how you’ll tag so that your tags are consistent (remember – no spaces within tags!)
    Plural vs singular
    Teacher’s names / course names
    Clean up your tags periodically using the delete and rename tag functions.
