Hello everyone! After much work between @liloverdue and myself we have completed the OPML creation and organization. I am super excited to read your intro posts via all the feeds I just added to my Feedly. All the course activity and posts can seem like a raging waterfall but utilizing a feed reader will help you! And savvy information professionals use news aggregators such as Feedly to stay current on topics of interest.
If you are using a feed reader (like Feedly), you can easily import this into your reader and have access to all the student blogs in our section of LIBR 200. Also, there could be additions, but I will post those individually for you to add.
Download the OPML here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zkd4bvq4geo2ibv/INFO200.02StephensFall2017.opml?dl=0
The OPML populates your reader with 2 “collections” of feeds. One is made up of student blogs from my section of my 200 and our Section Site course blog newsfeed. The 2nd collection includes the feeds from the Community Site blog and full activity feeds.
I would suggest downloading it to your desktop (via whatever method of mouse clicks you use on your computing platform) and then importing the file into reader of your choice. I suggest Feedly and use it in the steps below.
First, view this video:
Second, follow these steps:
- Set up an account with Feedly
- Click on Add Content in the lower left hand window
- Select import OPML
- Click on Import OPML and locate the file you saved above.
- Follow the directions on the import screen: Choose file and Import
- You are ready to go!
- You can also add other feeds from your favorite blogs at the LIBR200 Community Site and beyond.
I used first names in the feed titles because it helps me get to know you all. I hope I identified everyone correctly.
Note: I hope I didn’t make any mistakes!
So here’s the challenge to some fearless 200 student – please add the OPML to your reader and report back here in a comment!
