What is RSS

Commonly used for frequently updated information like news releases, blog entries and news updates, Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a web feed format used to distribute and receive headlines and other web content to your desktop. Instead of having to go back to a website to see what's new, new information is delivered to you.

The RSS feeds allow you to receive up-to-the-minute updates from CBT on your computer desktop, web browser or inbox depending on the RSS reader you choose.

Benefits of RSS

  • Allows you to select the type of news and information you receive from websites.
  • Enables you to determine when you get your news. Once you download your news reader, you can typically customize it to fetch news as frequently or infrequently as you like.
  • Because RSS requires you to download a news reader, you aren't subscribing to email lists, which decreases your risk of getting unwanted SPAM email.
  • Using RSS

  • Download and install an RSS Reader. This weblink lists a variety of readers available for download http://blogspace.com/rss/readers.
  • Subscribe to your news feeds. Once you have an RSS Reader installed, launch your reader application, then copy and paste the CBT News Release or CBT Spotlight Gallery RSS URL into an 'add new feed' window. Additional instructions on adding news feeds should be included when you download your specific news reader application.
  • Customize the settings on how often you would like to receive updates.
  • Keep the reader running and CBT RSS alerts will pop up on your tool bar, show up on your web browser or in your inbox depending on the RSS reader you choose.
