In addition to the usual reading list I give to students on the new MA Online Journalism, I also provide an OPML file of around 50 RSS feeds they should be subscribing to – broadly, 5 feeds each in 10 categories.
I thought I should make it available here, so: here it is.
The idea is that a) they get instant access to up-to-date news and analysis of a range of relevant areas; and b) it introduces them to the concept of RSS, if they don’t already know about it, and how to share OPML files.
It seems a no-brainer that we should be doing this on all courses.
Oh, and if you think there are better feeds, let me know.
