Apology

I apologize for having so many entries about tools - I honestly hope this will not become a "cool tools" blog. The trouble is, ever since my days with the Alliance for Community Technology (now defunct), where I developed a database of "social software" (now very outdated), I've been very interested in innovative tools for online learning and collaboration. Besides, I'm not currently involved in any exciting e-learning projects (sigh...), looking with considerable envy at the School of Public Health, which currently seems to be the most active place on this campus when it comes to pursuing e-learning initiatives. (Yes, I was hoping for some voluntary contributions to this blog from the innovators at SPH, but I may have to find the time to go and interview them. :-))

Keeping an eye on this blog

A few people asked me whether it would be possible to subscribe to this blog and get all new posts via e-mail. I said it wasn't possible, but I was partially wrong. Maybe mostly wrong. :-) Well, you can get the blog entries as RSS feeds and have them delivered to your e-mail client.

It is easy to setup in Outlook 2007: just go to Tools --> Account Settings --> Rss Feeds --> New and past the URL from the link "Syndicate this Site (XML)" visible on this blog. You will end up with another folder with the name of this blog under RSS Feeds, containing the posts. Here's a screenshot from my Outlook:

I'm sure it is not more complicated (probably less) in other clients (e.g. Thunderbird, Outlook 2003) that have RSS readers.
