First RSS Class for Patrons
I must admit, I didn’t know what to expect with my first Intro to RSS class for the public. I had five people signed up, including one of our own Library Interns. Of the rest, two showed up and I had one person just walk in and ask to stay. Thankfully, I had put basic requirements on the sign-up sheet and all in the class had web experience and existing e-mail accounts. I thought the class was rather unstructured, but everyone ended up the evening with their own news reader (MyYahoo) and had subscribed to some feeds. One of my students exclaimed that she had never had such a fun-filled class before. (I told her she needed to get a life!) The evaluations were all positive, so I guess they liked me and what I had to show them. I suspect it will be several months before I do this one again.
