Lora Adds About.com RSS Feed

After a bit of summer vacation (actually field work in Montana), Lora the Geologist (who is blogging about learning obejcts in geology) has found the news that About.com is now syndicating their content via RSS, and very quickly she has added a feed for their Geology collection to her site.

Now while About.com is not at all a “repository” of learnig objects, it is a very valuable instructional resource that can be checked now easily via RSS for new updates.

About.com has so many subject oriented sites, mainly collections of web sites organized and reviewed by a supposed expert in the matter, essentially a blog of sorts (and they say it is run by MovableType under the hood, just wish they would cease the stupid po-under ads). This is a really great resource that any instructor can add to their course web page, or Blackboard/WebCT course area using our previously described approach for including RSS via a JavaScript feed (full details…)

Profile Picture for Alan Levine aka CogDog
An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at CogDogBlog.com on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.
