Read Flogging the Dead Horse of RSS by Dean Shareski (ideasandthoughts.org)
I have included a module on RSS to allow my students to create their own research teams on topics of interest. Because I’m old, I still have my students set up Feedly accounts and plug in the RSS feeds of their classmates and hopefully add other blogs to their feeds as well. And like blogging, I realize only a handful will continue but I want to expose them to the power of sharing their own research/learning via blogging and how to find others who do as well via Feedly.

I also value reading a person‚Äôs blog over time to understand better their voice and context. So I‚Äôm asking for some advice on how to update my module on finding research. What replaces RSS feeds? What works for you that goes beyond ‚Äúsomeone on Twitter/Facebook shared‚Ķ.‚ÄĚ to something that is more focused and intentional?  ‚Ěß
