Add a New Feed
Your Daily newsletter will contain not only content from the course instructors, but also content created by course participants. In order to do this, we are asking all participants to create blogs or some other place to record their thoughts and ideas. The RSS feeds from these will be collected and distributed through the newsletter.

We will provide more instruction on this through the week. But if you already know how to create an RSS feed, then we ask that we submit your RSS feed to us using this form. Once your feed is submitted, it will be harvested, and any item that contains the tag CCK09 in the title, text or category will be displayed in the newsletter.

How do I find my rss feed?
So you've set up an account on Blogger, on Twitter, or wherever. How do you find your RSS feed for this account? Take a look at this item: it describes where to find your feed. If you have set up a Blogger blog, you can look at this item that will help you find your feed (note that the Blogger RSS feed is sometimes called an 'Atom' feed).

RSS in Plain English
If you do not know what RSS is, you should take a look at this short video describing the concept and how it is used. Lee LeFever and Sachi LeFever, Common Craft, September 15, 2009 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Course structure and philosophy
Last night, a group of 50 participants attended the official CCK09 course kickoff session (future recordings will also be posted to the site above). The session ran about 35 minutes and focused on how we designed CCK09, what we are hoping to see develop in terms of interaction, and ways in which course participants can contribute.

Spring in the Air
Keith Lyons provides perhaps the most graphic illustration of the experience of CCK08 in this post. I don't know about Stephen, but I felt like the biker in the picture looks! From Keith: "Without being too dramatic the course transformed my life!...I have a real sense of a CCK family and am looking forward to CCK09."
I'm looking forward to how CCK09 will differ from last year's offering - we have many active learners who will be able to, I think, offer commentary on their experience last year and serve as course facilitators and guides for those who are taking the course for the first time.
