Feedly – create your own newspaper!

feedly

Using Feedly is much like opening a newspaper that you have created yourself, with only sites you want to look at. Feedly pulls together the sites you like, and presents them to you in one place, right up to date with the latest content.

Feedly is tremendously useful for anyone who wishes to stay informed about the very latest news on their subject, or anything for that matter.  It will benefit you to experience this kind of software as it is becoming an increasingly common way to help people sift through the mountains of data created every day, to find what is useful to you.

NB: you can search for and add UK based sites if you wish.

Activity

Download the Feedly app onto your device (smart phone/iPad), OR open it on your PC/Mac.  

The  web version on your desktop computer and the app versions work and look very similar.

If you want to use the desktop version: Use the Google Chrome browser. Go here Feedly.com and sign up, sign in, and have a play.

  • We suggest you select ‘Continue with feedly’ when setting up a Feedly account, unless you are an experienced Facebook user, or have a Google account you are used to using:

To gain your credit today, install Feedly on your phone/device, OR go directly to it via your PC/Mac, find something of interest to your discipline, grab a link, and post it in the reply/comments section on this blog, just like yesterday.

To grab a link from Feedly, click on an article that you have found, and look for a paperclip icon – click it and the link will be copied and ready to paste into this blog. Use the Google Chrome browser if you’re doing it on a desktop computer.
