About RSS

RSS, which stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary, is an easy way to keep up with your favorite news and information. An RSS feed contains headlines, summaries and links to full news stories on http://theideacollege.com. If you click an RSS link, you will see XML (or eXtensible Markup Language) code in your browser. This is to be expected, since you do not view RSS content through a browser. You view the headlines through an RSS news reader (also called an RSS aggregator).

What are RSS Readers?

RSS news readers are small software programs that aggregate RSS feeds and display the story information. They allow you to scan headlines from hundreds of news sources in a central location.

How Do I Use These Feeds?

The first step, as described below, is to choose an RSS reader. Each reader has a slightly different way of adding a new feed (also called a "channel"). In most cases, here's how it works:

  1. Click on the small XML button near the channel you want (the AmeriCorps Newsroom, for example). You'll see a page displaying XML code.
  2. From your browser, copy the URL that appears in your Address Bar. For example, the URL you would copy for AmeriCorps News Stories is:

    http://theideacollege.com/rss.asp
  3. Paste that URL into the 'Add New Channel' section of the reader. You should be all set! The RSS feed will start to display and regularly update the headlines for you.

Using the "Subscribe" Button

On Corporation web pages that feature content that is also provided through an RSS feed, you will also see a "Subscribe" button that will allow you to automatically add the corresponding feed to a number of RSS readers and websites that support RSS content. Clicking on this icon will launch a window provided by AddThis Social Bookmarking (AddThis.com) and will allow for an individual to select from over 15 websites and readers that support RSS.

Note: Clicking on the Subscribe Icon obtained from this server does not constitute an endorsement or warranty of the service provided by AddThis Social Bookmarking (AddThis.com).

Where Do I Get an RSS Reader?

A wide range of RSS readers can be easily downloaded from the Web. Some readers are Web-based while others require you to download a small software program onto your desktop. Most are free to use.
