no more email subscriptions

Harold Jarche

In the past year I have deleted Google Analytics from this site and I have moved my email from Gmail to Fastmail. I would strongly suggest using a Feed Reader or RSS aggregator to manage your subscriptions. RSS has been around for a long time but the platform capitalists do not want you to use it as they cannot track you as easily as staying in their app or on their website. Put it to ‘the man’ in Silicon Valley and start using RSS instead!

RSS 108

90% of everything is crap

Harold Jarche

I don’t have any surveillance technologies (analytics) here, so I don’t know how many people read my work, or how much they like it. I do use Feedly as my feed reader and subscribe to my own site, so I can ensure that the RSS feed is working. Currently, I have written 3,170 posts on this blog. Feedly also gives me an idea of how popular a post is. The number represents some algorithm based on how much more popular a post is than the average one.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

1998 – Wikis Also: CMSs, RSS I didn't bother with Wikis. Instead, for me, 1998 was the year of RSS and content syndication. I did a lot of work with RSS, combining it with content management systems (CMS). Around this time I realized that bulletin boards were not going to last forever, and so I gathered the posts I had written to mailing lists and boards around the internet, but them in my own CMS, and started my own RSS feed.

Personal Learning: Taking Ownership of Learning Online: Part One

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Another thing I use is RSS. RSS is my major tool for aggregating content from other sites. Again, I could do a whole discussion of this but if you go to Feedly.com, that's an RSS reader and going to that site will get you started on RSS.

gRSShopper in a Box

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It includes some elements you might expect to find in a learning technologies landscape - learning analytics, competencies and skills, etc., and distributes the newsletter, RSS feeds and podcasts. Various specifications - API, RSS and LTI - are used to deliver learning resources (or even entire courses) to them. First, I need to make gRSShopper more flexible and add hooks for external services, including analytics.

Etiquette for sharing

Harold Jarche

There are now many to choose from, including open source and full-service analytics. For example, if your site exports its RSS feed using something like Google’s Feedburner, then the link people click on in their aggregators has extra information attached; so you can be tracked. utm_source=feedburner … I use Google Analytics on this site and understand why people want to see their social media traffic. Many people like to share things online.

Design Elements in a Personal Learning Environment

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The program draws on NRC''s research in other fields, such as machine learning and analytics. This in turn suggests a simplified design that supports this student-centered approach with connections to learning support applications, and in particular, to resource repositories, to external cloud media storage, to learning applications and APIs, and to external graph-based analytics.

I previously posted an item on Sir John Daniel's discussion of MOOCs, but I have added more extensive comments on Tony Bate's review - I rather suspect it is much more likely to be read by him there than on any site of mine. Here is thus the comment I posted: > I will be interested though (as will the author) in your responses to the paper.

Open as in commons, not garden

Harold Jarche

This week Google announced that it will close down Google Reader, an RSS aggregator that I have found useful, after Bloglines went offline and then changed its operating model. Google Plus is probably next, as is Google Analytics. Once again, it’s time to put my money where my mouth is. I have been a proponent of the open web and open source software for the past decade and more. This site was Creative Commons licensed when CC was in its infancy.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. That’s why it’s important to have a mechanism – like RSS – to link different websites together. link] It can be used as an RSS aggregator to harvest resources found or suggested by participants. They can either subscribe by email, reads the RSS version, reads the website, or follow the course on Twitter or Facebook.

Replacing Email?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

RSS as well remains strong, with something like 5000 (or it could be 10,000 - I don't have a good count, just Google Reader stats). RSS, email and the web are all different facets of the same content, at least when email is thought of from the perspective of email lists, as opposed to quick person-to-person messages. So - as Kelly asks - what will replace email and/or RSS and/or the web in the future, if not Google+?

Is It Time To Let Feedburner Burn?

Beth Kanter

I’ve been using Feedburner for my blog RSS Feeds since 2005! It is time to self-host your RSS feed many people wondered? Rumors that Google will close Feedburner are circulating again, but this time there is an option for an RSS hosting service, although not free. 1) Update your web site’s RSS autodiscovery tags to point to your native blog’s feed. This means that new subscribers always follow a feed on your domain, not your RSS provider’s platform.

The Rise of MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I've been working with aggregators since the beginning of RSS and of course have been influenced here by the work of people like Dave Winer and Aaron Swartz, among many others. This is the work of a field called 'Learning Analytics' (which should be 'discovered' by the Stanford-MIT nexus any time now). The Learning Analytics and Network Analysis approaches are not mutually exclusive.
