RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or sometimes, Really Simple Syndication – in general terms the capability offered by this service is called a “Web feed”. Based upon a subscription model, RSS can be used to automatically subscribe to updated content. Subscribing to an RSS feed negates the need to check individual blogs or websites for updates. This can be a useful tool for the student as a means to gather social content for summarization or analysis.
