Web Quest – Week 6
Posted by LibeRaCe on July 21, 2008
Welcome intrepid Web 2.0 adventurers!
You have now reached Week 6, where you’ll learn about RSS feeds and how to make the most of them.
Your challenges this week:
Task 1: Learn more about RSS feeds and their uses with the Quest Tutorial. We will use Pageflakes.com to find out more RSS feeds. Learn all about Pageflakes with this video. In what ways could libraries use RSS for students? Glasgow and Loughborough are both experimenting with RSS. And don’t forget your own Library Blog (see the newsfeeds to the right of the screen?). How could tutors use RSS in a class blog?
Task 2: Have a look at your favourites menu to see if any of the bookmarked sites have their own RSS feeds. Why not set up a PageFlakes account to keep track of all the headlines? If you want to explore Pageflakes without setting up an account, leave a comment on this post and the adminisrators will give you temporary editing access.
Don’t forget, you need to record your achievements in your blog!
If you need more help, ask your colleagues by leaving a comment on this post or check out the guides on the Library Moodle page.
