E-Mail Alerts and RSS Feeds for Distance Learning Administrators
Washburn, Allyson; Howell, Scott L.
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v11 n2 Sum 2008
This article describes how E-Mail Alerts and RSS feeds can be helpful tools for busy distance education administrators by helping them to efficiently sort through the research and news information that is now available. These tools and their respective filters and aggregators make it possible for busy distance education administrators to stay current with the increasing amount of literature and news in their field. Taking time to become familiar with the alerts and RSS feeds identified in this article may be a distance learning administrator's best hope of reducing hours of inefficient searching and digesting the ever-increasing information in the field. It may also be that the answer to an administrator's next distance education question or dilemma will be delivered to their e-mail box or reader by their next e-mail alert or RSS feed.
