But what exactly is RSS? Why should you be interested?
RSS is a mechanism by which web sites and other internet-based systems publish information feeds. For example, most newspapers ( Kerryman, Independent etc.) with an online presence publish a number of RSS feeds on various topics, containing details of stories. There are literally hundreds of thousands of feeds available. To read these feeds, which are generally free, all you need to do is to subscribe to the feeds you're interested in, and get yourself some RSS feed reader software such as InoReader, or Feedly.com
When you vist a web site that offers an RSS feed you're interested in, click on the link to that feed and then copy its address into the "subscribe" box on your Inoreader or Feedly.com account. It'll be added to any subscriptions you already have, which you can then read by simply clicking on the feed titles within your reader.
If you're interested in a particular topic, and you don't want to keep scanning hundreds of web sites to see what's new in your field, RSS is a great idea. Just sign up to the RSS feeds from the sites you're interested in, then read everything in one place via your RSS Reader. You'll never need to visit the individual websites.
Literacy in Ireland
In the past literacy was considered to be the ability to read and write. Today the meaning of literacy has changed to reflect changes in society and the skills needed by individuals to participate fully in society. It involves listening, speaking, reading, writing, numeracy and using everyday technology to communicate and handle information.
Hi, my name is Loreto and I'm an adult literacy tutor. I created this website to keep track of all things useful I have come across. Sometimes I am given a link by someone and if its not put on here it can be forgotten about. If you come across something you think is useful or even just fun, drop me a note to let me know and I will put it on here. Thank you for your time and I hope you find this website useful.
