What are RSS newsfeeds?

We think this is best understood by watching this entertaining video demonstration from YouTube:

RSS (Rich Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication) is an easy way of receiving changing website content.

The RSS feeds on the Subject Centre site will keep you up to date with news and events.

To receive the feed you will need a reader.

If you have a newer web browser like Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer 8, you can view feeds directly in your web-browser. Otherwise, two popular and easy to use feed readers include FeedReader (Windows) and NetNewsWire (Mac), or you can use a web-based feed reader such as Google Reader

Our feeds can also be added to bookmark sites like iGoogle, Netvibes, Facebook and many more. You can add our feeds to these sites easily using the subscribe buttons below each feed title.
