What is RSS?
RSS stands for Rich Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication – A lightweight XML format for distributing news headlines and other content on the Web. An RSS “feed” (also commonly referred to as a news feed) allows Web site visitors to subscribe to a site’s news feeds using a news reader.
What is a news feed?
A news feed is a listing of a Web site’s content. It is updated whenever new content is published to the site. News readers “subscribe” to news feeds, which means they download lists of stories at an interval that you specify (every 30 minutes, for example), and present them to you in your news reader. A news feed might contain a list of story headlines, a list of excerpts from the stories, or a list containing each story from the Web site. All news feeds will have a link back to the website, so if you see a headline/excerpt/story you like, you can click on the link for that piece of content and you will be taken to the website to read it.
How can I subscribe to TCU’s news feeds?
First, download a news reader. A news reader (also known as a news aggregator) is simply a piece of software that you can use to read your subscribed news feeds. It is to news feeds what Outlook, Hotmail, and Entourage are to email.
Once you’ve found and installed a news reader you like, click on the link below for each feed you want to subscribe to then cut and paste the RSS URL into your news reader or use the correct button to automatically add it to your personalized page.
