RSS & iCal feeds

What is an RSS feed?

RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication) is a common mechanism where publishers can offer their frequently updated information (news, events, blog entries, multimedia (audio and video)) through a standard web feed. The RSS feed usually contains useful metadata like a summary of the info, publisher's name, and publication date, and also enclosures like photo thumbnails.

Visitors of the Singapore Management University sites can subscribe to these RSS news feeds, and can stay updated on the latest news and events, without having to manually check the web site for new content. This is usually done via a RSS news reader. Much like a news 'fetcher', RSS news readers or aggregators can help you download the news items automatically and present for your reading pleasure, at a later time. RSS news readers can be web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-app based. Some of them are free, while others are commercially available.
