Subscribe to blog RSS feed

This assignment will give you practice using an RSS reader.

You will need a Google account for this assignment. If you do not already have one, create an account at google.com.

Once you have an account, subscribe to our class blog (http://cis471.blogspot.com). Go to the blog and click on "Subscribe to this blog by RSS" in the right hand column. Select "Subscribe to this blog using Google." You will be taken to Google where you can confirm the request. (Be sure to select the option to "Add to Google Reader", not "Add to Google Homepage").

When you have completed the subscription, print out your Google Reader page showing it to turn in.

(Be sure the list of subscriptions is showing in the left hand column of the screen. If it is not, click on the right-arrow/triangle to open the list).

Check your Google Reader daily for at least two weeks, starring any items you consider noteworthy.
