Sharing the RSS love

Google Reader One of the attractions of moving our student network to Google+ is that we already use a number of Google tools on the first year module, including Google Reader for subscribing to RSS feeds.

Next week the module rolls around to the RSS topic, so I've been updating the notes we give to students. On change this year is to offer them an OPML bundle to make it easier for them to find information (or freak out by drinking from the firehose). After playing around with various OPML editors, the obvious answer was to create a Google Reader feed bundle and share that with students.

However, one of the sadnesses of the past few years is how few colleagues I've been able to convert to regular RSS users (you know who you are), so it seems appropriate to share this with you for your education as well ;-)
