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