Education Research: Create Customized RSS Feeds With ERIC Database

From a New Post on the ERIC Web Site:

Would you like to receive the latest material on an education topic of your choice? You can build on any search you create in ERIC by setting up a customized RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed. The symbol RSS Feed Icon lets you know that you can click on your topics of interest to get automatically updated information sent to your computer or handheld device. All you need to access this information is reader software available through Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google, MSN, Yahoo, and many others.

Watch our new 2-minute tutorial, Using RSS Feeds in ERIC, to learn how you can set up and use an RSS feed to track material on specific education issues in the ERIC Digital Library. The tutorial is available from the ERIC Web site (see Help > Tutorials). Once you have completed the simple process of setting up the feed, new content that matches your search terms will be delivered to you as it is added to ERIC.

ERIC also provides more than 20 pre-established feeds on a variety of education topics, including bullying, classroom management, and parent involvement. For additional information, including the list of currently available feeds, visit the RSS Feeds section of the ERIC Web site.
