What's a Feed?

A feed is simply a file containing summaries of stories and news. Using a news reader you can get a quick glimpse of stories published by the Indiana Department of Education. Stories are often updated throughout the week. The news reader can notify you when a new story appears on the Web site, so you don't have to keep checking the site for new stories.

How do I Read an RSS Feed?

To read an RSS Feed you'll need news reader software like NetNewsWire from Ranchero Software or Shrook 2 by Graham Parks. Once you launch a news reader, you can copy the address for the RSS feed listed below -- for example, in Safari, just ctrl-click the link and select the "Copy Link to Clipboard" option from the contextual menu that appears. You'll need to paste this URL into the news reader program, when you create a new news feed connection. Some news readers, like NetNewsWire, lets you just drag a link, like the one below, directly into the program to add the news feed.
