Items Shown and/or Referenced in Presentation
Presentation and Demonstration Videos
All presentation and demonstration videos via Rick's "Flash" player. (Requires Flash). This link will initiate my Flash player, which then reads the RSS feed, and then displays the first three videos and focus on the third. Clicking on the "All" button will show all videos contained in this RSS feed.
With my Flash player, I can draw your attention to only my "Who is Dr. Jerz" video.
Or, I can easily make all videos show when you click this link, yet position you on my "Overview of Moodle" video.
If you click on this xml URL in your browser, you will discover whether your browser interprets this RSS feed and displays it in human-readable form, if it simply displays the XML data code, or something else.
If you are using a RSS feed reader, like iTunes or Podcast Republic (Android), copy the above link and paste it into your feed reader.
Progressive Download Video Links (not Flash)
This links provide direct access to the video URL. Sometimes the videos will download to your computer or device, and sometimes they will stream.
Examples of RSS Feeds
Start with A Simple RSS Feed when you are creating your own, and modify it. I mentioned this in my presentation.A simple XML RSS Feed file. (You might need to right-click Save this file from your browser.)
This file demonstrates some of the minimal requirements for an RSS podcast feed file. You might want to tell your browser to save this file instead of opening it. In Firefox, you do this by right-clicking the link and choosing "Save Link As."
A simple RSS/XML file, embedded in an MS Word Document. I put my simple XML file in a Word document and bold-faced the items that you would typically change.
Some of these are more automatic than others.
