{August 8, 2008}   RSS Google Reader

In the self paced session on Tuesday afternoon I created a Google Reader  account and subscribed to a few RSS feeds including the Guardian and Library. I have logged in a couple of times since then and I’m impressed at how quickly you can skim read through all the new information. It’s very user friendly – easy to viewthe new items and subscribe and unsubscribe to feeds. I will now just need to build logging on to Google Reader as part of my working routine.

Karen showed me how to add all the feeds from the Learning 2.0 programme participant blogs to my account, using an OPML file which is available on Owen’s page. This was tricky but well worth it as I can now keep up with new entries from everyone without having to log into Wetpaint . I’m still printing out instructions and filing up my ring-bound folder but I am feeling more confident now using all these Web 2.0 tools.
