Using RSS feeds to keep on top of the blogs you’re interested in

One way of stemming the rising sense of ‘just too much information for 24 hours in the day’ is to use RSS (Really Simple Syndication) to aggregate information from the blogs you’re interested in. That means you can check them all out from one place, one window, rather than having to check each individual website to see what’s on the blog today.

I’ve posted a screencast on Learn (http://learn.lboro.ac.uk/mod/resource/view.php?id=166872) to show how this works in Internet Explorer. If I feel a rush of enthusiasm I’ll do it for Chrome and Firefox, too. Google Reader does a similar job… I’ll add that to the list…

Feedback, questions welcome.
