What is a feed?
A feed (also known as RSS) is a way of keeping up to date with content which changes or is added to from time to time, such as the NCETM online magazines.
Rather than having to check back on a web page to see if any new issues have been published, a feed can download any new content, and you can check all your feeds at once for any new information.
To subscribe to a feed, just click on the orange RSS logo and confirm you want to subscribe to the feed (the confirmation screen will look different depending on the browser or feed subscription program you are using).
Now, when content is updated, a link will appear in your feed reader the next time you check it.
Please note that, unlike the option on the NCETM portal to be emailed when an item receives a comment, a feed may not automatically notify you when a new magazine has been published. Some readers do have an option to alert the user by email, sounds or other prompts when new content is available, but this is dependent on the program in use.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 has a default reader under the 'Favorites' button. The screenshot below shows the reader, which has three subscriptions. The bold text of the BBC feed indicates one or more new items.
