Check this one

Hey I found this amazing blog with so many great links.
Have a look & be prepared to spend some time there. It clearly demonstrates that blogging is well on the scene in academia in the US.
Hope you are blogging away as madly as I am. I have started 2 new ones recently & taken over from Louise as administrator on one she set up for our community of practice on Assessment Validation here at Petersham.

RSS: A Learning TechnologyBy Eva Kaplan-Leiserson

This article is first in a quarterly series of articles that will discuss learning technology trends in the distance or spotlight technology trends and examine their applicability to learning.

Some people call it the next World Wide Web. Some say tools like it will replace LMSs and LCMSs. What is it? RSS, which is known to some as Rich Site Summary, others as RDF (Resource Description Framework) Site Summary, and still others as Really Simple Syndication. But it’s not the acronym that’s important, it’s the result: a means of driving content directly from its producer to its recipient automatically, almost instantaneously, and without interference from viruses, spam, or other modern day electronic pests.

This article will help you understand not only what RSS is, but also why it’s getting the hype it is in the world of content, what its potential is in the learning arena, and how it’s already being used in educational settings.
