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. 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 – Select the orange RSS icon at the right of the subject heading.
Step 3 – Select Subscribe now. You can then save this in your favourites eliminating the need to log into Jorum every time you want to check for any new resources.
Using the unique URL for your feed allows a wealth of possibilities including displaying it in a VLE such as Moodle.
