Jane Hart

Next public online workshop runs 3 – 21 August 2015 When it comes to online learning, you don’t necessarily have to provide a course in one package. You could chunk it up and deliver it over an extended period of time (weeks or even months) on a daily or weekly basis.

Seed, feed, & weed

Clark Quinn

Using the gardener or landscaper metaphor, yesterday I said that networks need seeding, feeding, and weeding. Feed : you can’t just put in place, you have to nurture the network. In my presentation yesterday, I was talking about how to get informal learning going. As many have noted, it’s about moving from a notion of being a builder, handcrafting (or mass-producing) solutions, to being a facilitator, nurturing the community to develop it’s own capabilities.

Feed Filters

Tony Karrer

However, what I had hoped to find was a way for AideRSS to send me a feed of the top few posts across a large set of RSS feeds (like the 3,000 or so edublogs). It would be fairly easy for them to provide a view of a set of RSS feeds sorted by "interestingness" based on a similar formula. I had previously discussed the Aide RSS Filtering Tool - AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and del.icio.us

Feed the Habit: Digital Multitasking

Adaptive Path

This raises an important issue: should we design for multitasking behavior, or are we feeding a habit that is a gateway to distraction and overall work inefficiency? During a recent research and strategy project at Adaptive Path, our team uncovered a fascinating pattern around media multitasking—most participants between 20 and 30 years of age watched TV or movies while engaging with laptops, iPads, and smart phones.

Full vs Partial Feeds

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to Dan Lockton : Not all feeds are designed to spread the article-length content of blogs. One of my own feeds , for example, will at first glance resemble a partial feed. On closer examination, my feed turns out to be linking to longer posts from other sites. Imagine what the web would have looked had the default in blog posts and RSS feeds been as it was originally used, to point to someone else's site.

Why You Should Provide Full Feeds (especially on Blogger)

Tony Karrer

Someone pointed out that many bloggers use partial feeds which forces readers to their blog. I started with full feeds and then found myself curious about who my readers were. Ah, so to fix that I decided to change my feed to a partial feed so you only get the first paragraph. What I've learned since: Partial feeds are annoying as a blog reader, so I was being annoying providing a partial feed.

Ascent from Social Media

What they're trying to do is to insert themselves into my news feed. My news feed is where I read the messages my friends and family have posted. They're just inserted into my feed. And while (in theory) I can block messages from a specific source, I can't keep them out of my feed altogether. All this - the clickbait and spam and sponsored posts and advertising - is inserted into my feed instead of the observations and comments from my friends.

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. I appreciate full feeds and clean URL’s as a reader.
