How To Add RSS Feeds to Critical Literacies 2010
I've created a video showing you how to add your RSS Feed to the Critical Literacies 2010 course. We will start displaying posts from your blogs shortly. The video will show you how to create a blog in blogger, how to log in to the newsletter website, and how to enter your blog.

Even if you've submitted your RSS feed some time in the past, you need to do it again, because all previous feeds have been cleaned out to make way for this course. Here are two links to remember:

View the helpful video: http://connect.downes.ca/files/addrss/

Login to the Newsletter: http://connect.downes.ca/options.htm

Submit New RSS Feed: http://connect.downes.ca/new_feed.htm

You can submit any RSS feed you like; it doesn't have to be a blog. Remember, though: if you want your content listed in the newsletter, it MUST have the tag CritLit2010 somewhere in the title, content or category of the post. That way we'll know you it's a post about this course, and not pictures of your cat. Stephen Downes, Critical Literacies 2010, June 8, 2010 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]


Here's what course members from around the world had to say. Want to join the conversation? Submit your feed. Then put this at the beginning of your post: CritLit2010
