What is RSS? About the university

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication", and allows web publishers to widely distribute any content they wish to share with their readers.

How does it work?

An RSS reader (small program installed on your machine) interprets the code from feeds or channels you are subscribed to, and displays updated information from all of them every time you start it up.

What's in it for me?

The technology allows you to see all the latest stories / content from multiple websites on one screen.

No more wading through multiple websites trying to find the information you need. RSS does the hard work putting you in control, helping to save time and effort.

Where can I get an RSS reader from?

Search for "RSS feed reader" or "RSS aggregator" to find a reader that suits you. Many web browsers and e-mail clients now come with a built in RSS reader too.
