Do you want to be updated in real time about the starting courses of a particular category or run by a particular company?

From now the RSS are have been activated also on CourseForMe.

Use them to be informed, saving considerable time!

But what are the RSS?

For the most expert users, first of all they are the (acronym of Really Simple Syndacation), which is a system based on a standard language XML for the distribution of contents.

For those who have a conflicting relationship with technology, we can say that it is a tool allowing to easily link the contents of one or more websites, simply join them in a click and display the updates also outside the browser every time they are updated.

How to do it?

  1. Install on your computer an RSS feed aggregator or an RSS reader. Many of them are free, such as sharpreader, feedreader, sage...
  2. add the RSS feed address to the list of those you want to monitor by clicking the right button of the mouse on the button on the content that you want to follow on CourseForMe ( e.g. a course category) and paste the link;

Here’s a funny video created by “The Common Craft” about the use of the RSS: : "Rss in plain english".

And all done!

Comfortably sit and keep following us moving… just a finger!

Social Buttons: Google '+1' and Facebook 'Like'

There are many “social buttons” on the web and they are very popular. CourseForMe has been using for longtime the “share” button from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

They are useful to advertise what we like and what we want to suggest to other users through the most popular social networks.

Recently, Google has introduced the button "+1", which is similar to "Like" from Facebook and it’s a way to say that something is really interesting or that you want to suggest it.

What makes these buttons innovative is that “+1” and “Like” influence the results of the searches made respectively with Google and Bing and so they can increase the number of the applications for the courses published on CourseForMe.

In order to capitalize the advantages, CourseForMe has inserted “+1” and “Like” in the pages of the courses, of the training centres and of the categories. We suggest you to invite your students to click on “+1” and “Like” both on the pages of your courses and on the one of your training centre.

Please, don’t forget “+1” and “Like” on our new blog!
