Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharing relevant RSS feeds, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- In the previous videos in this chapter,…we looked at resources you can add and manage…within Moodle sections, such as adding folders,…files, links to external websites,…and your own webpages in Moodle.…Before we close this chapter,…let's look at a more dynamic resource called an RSS feed…that constantly updates as new information is provided.…You can share those in Moodle through a block…called the Remote RSS feed.…If you haven't heard of RSS before,…it stands for Really Simple Syndication.…You can see the logo commonly associated with RSS.…
The RSS process allows you to pull subscription web content…such as articles, blog posts, or podcast episodes.…As soon as it's updated, the content is sent…through a feed by the particular source you pick,…such as the BBC.…A nanosecond or two later,…it arrives at your reader,…a tool that displays the feeds in a simple format.…Most browsers have a reader.…For example, maybe you subscribe to a news feed from BBC.…There you can get specific news on a topic of your choice.…You can even do it to a mobile device.…
