What is RSS?

RSS is an easy way for you to keep updated automatically on Web sites you like. Instead of checking your favorite Web sites to see if they've written a new article or feature, you can use RSS (which stands for Really Simple Syndication) to get them to tell you every time they have something new.

Mount Marty College offers RSS feeds (or channels) for most of its calendar sections.

How can I make use of RSS?

Generally, you need to have a program called a News Reader. This will display RSS feeds from your chosen Web sites on your computer.

All you have to do is choose which RSS feeds you want, for instance an RSS feed of all the latest local news from yankton.net.

How can I sign up to RSS feeds from Mount Marty College?

The links below list the RSS feeds that are available.

You then need to follow the instructions for your particular News Reader in order to add this  XML feed to your RSS list.

However, generally speaking, you copy or enter the URL(page address) of the RSS feed page into your news reader. For example, if you clicked on "Community Events " it will open  the XML feed in a new window.

Here are the Mount Marty College pages which are available for syndication:

XML RSS feed Community Events
XML RSS feed Press Releases
XML RSS feed Student Activities
XML RSS feed Athletic Events
