How do I set up RSS feeds for alert notifications?

You can set up RSS feeds to be alerted when a new resource is added to a particular subject area. The main advantage is that you don’t have to keep logging into Jorum to find out if there is something new you might be interested in.

Step 1 – Browse for a subject category that you are interested in from our list of available RSS feeds. Even if Jorum finds no suitable resources, you can still subscribe to an RSS feed, so that you can be notified when any resources are added.

Step 2 – Click on the link for your chosen collection or subject and then select your chosen feed reader from the drop down menu and click Subscribe now.

Using the unique URL for your feed allows a wealth of possibilities including displaying it in a VLE such as Moodle.
