Dr. Jean-Claude Bradley, Coordinator for E-Learning at the College of Arts and Sciences at Drexel University, has recently started a new initiative to enhance the use of RSS (Really Simple Syndication) technology in teaching and learning.
The RSS Club meets every Friday at 12 pm in MacAlister Hall in room 4020. You are all invited. We are all learning from this new technology so your participation may result in some good discussion in the process.
