  • The half-life of knowledge continues to decrease; it is important to stay current.
  • You are a lifelong learner just trying to stay informed.
  • The amount of information is overwhelming and you may have a hard time managing it.
  • You want an easy system to help stay abreast of new trends.
  • I will show you how to transform NetVibes into a personal learning environment.
  • The primary benefit of a personal learning environment is the ability to organize current information.
  • A PLE allows you to pull information from multiple resources.
  • Using RSS feeds, you can subscribe to information.
  • As a result, information is timely because it is updated as the originator adds it.
  • There are a number of different options for organizing and sharing information.
  • You can group information based on theme or concept or individual.
  • You can set up searches for information using key terms or phrases.
  • By making your site public, others can benefit from your information.
  • As with other tools, it is important to understand the basics of the tool – Netvibes.
  • There are three types of NetVibes sites: private, public, and dashboards.
  • Private sites are for site you do not wish to share with others.
  • Public sites can be created be used to share information with others.
  • Dashboards are a quick way to gathers feeds from multiple sites on a topic.
  • Setting up and adding content to your site is your key success.
  • Tabs provide you with the ability to group content.
  • There are over 190,000 widgets to help you customize your PLE.
  • RSS feeds are the key to getting the information you want.
  • Dashboards are an easy way to quickly gather information on a subject.
  • If a content originator wants you to subscribe to their information, they will create an RSS feed.
  • In most cases, it is easy to identify RSS feeds.
  • If you go to a RSS feed directly, it will often look like code.
  • There are a number of RSS feeds that will help you stay current.
  • Google News searches will display current news on a subject.
  • Start by conducting a search at http://www.google.com/news
  • Go to the bottom of the page, and copy the RSS link address.
  • Go to Netvibes and click on “Add content.”
  • Next, click on “Add a feed.”
  • Paste in the URL for the RSS feed.
  • Finally, drag RSS feed widget to the content area.
  • Twitter search queries will help you keep up to date on ongoing conversations.
  • Start by conducting a search at http://search.twitter.com/
  • Twitter search operators will help you refine your search. http://search.twitter.com/operators
  • Go to the upper right part of the page, and copy the RSS link address.
  • Go to Netvibes and click on “Add content.”
  • Next, click on “Add a feed.”
  • Paste in the URL for the RSS feed.
  • Finally, drag RSS feed widget to the content area.
  • By following a specific public tag, you can see all new links saved in Delicious.
  • First, conduct a search within delicious tags at http://delicious.com/tag/
  • Go to the bottom of the page, copy the RSS link address, and create a Netvibes RSS widget.
  • You can also create your own RSS feeds by using the formats provided on http://delicious.com/help/json
  • Your library’s digital archives may provide you with RSS feed capability.
  • Conduct a search for your term of choice. In this case, I am search in EBSCOhost.
  • Click on the RSS image, copy the RSS link address, and create a Netvibes RSS widget.
  • You may be interested in staying up to date on the latest Youtube videos.
  • There is a not an easy way to copy a RSS address in Youtube, you will have to create one.
    http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/uwcesedtech/uploads
  • http://www.youtube.com/rssls provides additional RSS feed types.
  • If you want to see the latest photos posted on Flickr, you can also set up an RSS feed.
  • The easiest method I have found so far is using a RSS feed generator.
  • A very useful RSS generator can be found at http://www.degraeve.com/flickr-rss/
  • Copy the resulting URL from the address bar and create a Netvibes RSS widget.
