One of the biggest speed bumps in doing a connected course in the Feed WordPress style approach is having people figure out the arcane URL for their Blog’s RSS Feed. It’s relatively easy and discoverable if someone’s entire blog is devoted to the course or project, but gets messier if someone wants to use a […]
I’ve got my hands in two current connected course sites that rely on the Feed WordPress syndication approach— one is Open Learning 17 led by Gardner Campbell and the other is the Networked Narratives course I am co-teaching with Mia Zamora. We’ve had a bit of a circle around on a part that has little […]
This post is meant primarily for participants in the Networked Narratives course I am co-teaching with Mia Zamora, where everyone is publishing in their own blog space. Everything here applies as well for the Open Learning ’17 course led by Gardner Campbell; I’m working on both sites at the same time, so things I do […]
Most people will never need such a thing in a WordPress site, but outside the boxes of blogging, where WordPress is a Swiss Army Knife, there are situations where you need to run a script or do something on a regular interval. Maybe it’s polling social media. Maybe it’s updating some information about your site. […]
That’s about half the descriptors in the title for a writeup on my latest WordPress/Syndication Hub site that Does Not Act Like a Blog- the Covering the Coverage site, one of the 24 courses that are part of Gardner Campbell et al’s Great VCU Race Bike Book project. I’m pretty stoked for how it is […]
Wow, I thought I had written this up somewhere, but because Ken asked, and he is doing cool stuff with his Connected Course… Can anyone share the code for the Magic Box #CCourses http://t.co/lv3QFzS45M @cogdog @mburtis @timmmmyboy ? — Ken Bauer Favel (@ken_bauer) February 11, 2015 What is the Magic Box? Not much magic, but […]
UPDATE June 19, 2013 Since twitter has killed their version 1 API, there is no longer a public RSS feed provided for twitter activity. Expect new solutions to emerge, one that is usable now is this method from labnol to convert the new JSON feeds to RSS using a Google Script. This method works in FeedWordpress.
I’m growing more and more and more and more (more?) interested in building out more syndication architectures like we have done in ds106, at a range of scales from te 600 feeds we crunch for ds106 to the 40 or so we did for the Project Community Class down to the 2 I do for my own self syndication.
Leaning towards the bigger end, I have been working to set this up for the ETMOOC thing Alec Couros (and about 90 other people it seems) are launching soon. It’s been a great chance to stretch some WordPress chops with FeedWordPress in place for the syndication engine.
Below I outline how I created the site that is archiving the #etmooc tweets – http://etmooc.org/tweets

In fact, well, let’s say I am writing something profound about networks and syndication, mainly because I am setting up and testing some blog syndication for Alec Couros’s ETMOOC due to blast […]
