Syndicating Your Voice on the Web: R.S.S., Web 2.0 and Education Hello? Can Anybody Hear Me? A presentation by Dr. Joseph M. Pisano

What is “Syndication”?: 

Syndicating Your Voice on the Web: R.S.S., Web 2.0 and Education Hello? Can Anybody Hear Me? A presentation by Dr. Joseph M. Pisano What is “Syndication”? When material (media, information, etc.) is supplied for re-use for inclusion or integration with other materials. The original material(s) is duplicated, integrated, and distributed. In the digital “web” world, “syndication” often refers to the sharing of material on one website with others though some type of distribution network. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

Is Syndication “Publication”?:

You can distribute a “work” through syndication simply by allowing others access to your work. Through the “syndication” of your “publication” others can have copies (exact or otherwise specified) of your work. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

A shift in the way we gather information from the internet…:

This is repeated again, and again… The user searches and opens a related website… Once a website is found to be “re-usable”, the user can save time by going directly to the website using a “bookmark” or direct link to save some time. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

DIFFERENT: The user subscribes to relevant information (website source) via the syndication “feed” available from the website.. By subscribing, the feed is added to a “syndication reader”. Anytime the initial web source is “updated” or new content is added, the user is notified of the “update” immediately via the “syndication reader”. The need to actually visit the source site again is greatly reduced and the user can decide when he/she needs to visit the site again. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

Why in the “world” would I do this as an information seeker?:

To notify any subscriber to any change or addition to a product line, service, or whatever information that you want to relay as fast as possible. Using web syndication, you can literally “connect in” to very specific networks (other users with similar ideas, content, etc.) that will begin to syndicate your content for you! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Can’t I do this with a simple website? Yes and no… A simple website is “static”. People have to find you and your website every time they want to know something. If you update information on your website, people may not come back to your site to learn about it (especially problematic if the information is time sensitive)… It can take a very long time for “new information” to populate across the web. A syndication enabled website allows others (subscribers) to find your site once, then be informed, almost immediately, anytime the site is updated or changed through syndication. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

What is R.S.S.? : 

Syndicating Your Voice on the Web: R.S.S., Web 2.0 and Education Hello? Can Anybody Hear Me? A presentation by Dr. Joseph M. Pisano What is “Syndication”? When material (media, information, etc.) is supplied for re-use for inclusion or integration with other materials. The original material(s) is duplicated, integrated, and distributed. In the digital “web” world, “syndication” often refers to the sharing of material on one website with others though some type of distribution network. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Is Syndication “Publication”? No. Something has to be published before it can be syndicated. Yes. You can distribute a “work” through syndication simply by allowing others access to your work. Through the “syndication” of your “publication” others can have copies (exact or otherwise specified) of your work. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education A shift in the way we gather information from the internet… Gathering information, such as news, from the web before the widespread usage of internet-based syndication forms: A search is performed using a typical search engine (Google, Yahoo, etc.) Information is returned from the engine, the user analyzes the information, the user goes to the page they decide has the most related information to his/her initial query. This is repeated again, and again… The user searches and opens a related website… Once a website is found to be “re-usable”, the user can save time by going directly to the website using a “bookmark” or direct link to save some time. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education A shift in the way we gather information from the internet… Gathering information, such as news, from the web utilizing syndication. THE SAME: A search is performed using a typical search engine (Google, Yahoo, etc.) Information is returned from the engine, the user analyzes the information, the user goes to the page they decide has the most related information to his/her initial query. DIFFERENT: The user subscribes to relevant information (website source) via the syndication “feed” available from the website.. By subscribing, the feed is added to a “syndication reader”. Anytime the initial web source is “updated” or new content is added, the user is notified of the “update” immediately via the “syndication reader”. The need to actually visit the source site again is greatly reduced and the user can decide when he/she needs to visit the site again. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

RSS UNLEASHED!: 

Syndicating Your Voice on the Web: R.S.S., Web 2.0 and Education Hello? Can Anybody Hear Me? A presentation by Dr. Joseph M. Pisano What is “Syndication”? When material (media, information, etc.) is supplied for re-use for inclusion or integration with other materials. The original material(s) is duplicated, integrated, and distributed. In the digital “web” world, “syndication” often refers to the sharing of material on one website with others though some type of distribution network. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Is Syndication “Publication”? No. Something has to be published before it can be syndicated. Yes. You can distribute a “work” through syndication simply by allowing others access to your work. Through the “syndication” of your “publication” others can have copies (exact or otherwise specified) of your work. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education A shift in the way we gather information from the internet… Gathering information, such as news, from the web before the widespread usage of internet-based syndication forms: A search is performed using a typical search engine (Google, Yahoo, etc.) Information is returned from the engine, the user analyzes the information, the user goes to the page they decide has the most related information to his/her initial query. This is repeated again, and again… The user searches and opens a related website… Once a website is found to be “re-usable”, the user can save time by going directly to the website using a “bookmark” or direct link to save some time. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education A shift in the way we gather information from the internet… Gathering information, such as news, from the web utilizing syndication. THE SAME: A search is performed using a typical search engine (Google, Yahoo, etc.) Information is returned from the engine, the user analyzes the information, the user goes to the page they decide has the most related information to his/her initial query. DIFFERENT: The user subscribes to relevant information (website source) via the syndication “feed” available from the website.. By subscribing, the feed is added to a “syndication reader”. Anytime the initial web source is “updated” or new content is added, the user is notified of the “update” immediately via the “syndication reader”. The need to actually visit the source site again is greatly reduced and the user can decide when he/she needs to visit the site again. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why in the “world” would I do this as an information seeker? To save time -to have exactly the information that you are looking for delivered to you without having to manually seek it, after the subscription is established. To be notified, immediately, of relevant updates, breaking news, new articles, new products, new events, recent changes in weather, alerts, new files posted, etc. Using syndication… information that is of interest to you…finds you! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why in the world would I want to do this as a publisher? To notify as many people of your “work” or “materials” as possible, with little to no money involved. To notify any subscriber to any change or addition to a product line, service, or whatever information that you want to relay as fast as possible. Using web syndication, you can literally “connect in” to very specific networks (other users with similar ideas, content, etc.) that will begin to syndicate your content for you! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why would a musician want to utilize syndication? To notify people of: The latest news about them or their group The latest soundtrack release The latest event they are performing at The latest event they are going to attend The latest anything that they want people to know about! To subscribe to any site that is offering: syndicated information about their instruments, related journal publications, information about new music and compositions, new videocasts and podcasts about technique or providing online lessons, concerts, tours, etc. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why would a music educator want to utilize syndication? To inform their classes about: Assignments Related topics about their classes Related ensemble news Additional resources available To inform the community of: Their concerts and events Their classroom topics, policies, themselves… Any news that they have to relate to anyone To communicate with other musicians and educators about: Anything! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Can’t I do this with a simple website? Yes and no… A simple website is “static”. People have to find you and your website every time they want to know something. If you update information on your website, people may not come back to your site to learn about it (especially problematic if the information is time sensitive)… It can take a very long time for “new information” to populate across the web. A syndication enabled website allows others (subscribers) to find your site once, then be informed, almost immediately, anytime the site is updated or changed through syndication. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education The true power of syndication… Internet based syndication, when used to its fullest potential, allows you to gain control of the deluge of daily information and organize it in ways never before possible… both as a receiver of information and a purveyor of information.

Syndicating Your Voice on the Web: R.S.S., Web 2.0 and Education Hello? Can Anybody Hear Me? A presentation by Dr. Joseph M. Pisano What is “Syndication”? When material (media, information, etc.) is supplied for re-use for inclusion or integration with other materials. The original material(s) is duplicated, integrated, and distributed.

I’ll bet many of you have never heard of the specific term… © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education What is R.S.S.? An acronym meaning: “Really Simple Syndication”. Some definitions also refer to it as: “Rich Site Summary”. Another form of syndication is known as ATOM and although a little different, it functions the same and for this presentation –the two terms will mean the same thing. RSS is changing the way we dispense, utilize, and receive information from the internet. RSS allows the type of syndication, or rich communication, used today on the internet. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education The Power of RSS through “Web 2.0” Internet Sites. The phrase “Web 2.0” first appeared in 2001 Web 2.0 refers to knowledge and community based informational sites or applications. That is, sites that allow for the sharing and interactivity of data stored at a WWW destination… a very rich web experience vs. a stagnant one.For example:Web 1.0 Items: Web 2.0 Items:FAQs: Forums:Typical Static Website Blog: Web (Gatekeeper of knowledge) (Facilitator of knowledge)Britannica WikipediaPublishing Participation © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education The Power of Syndication Through a Web Log or Web 2.0 enabled website. Web logs or “blogs” finally hit the ground running, after a slow start, around 2003-4. During this time, blogs started to become powerful information conveyance tools and used by high power sources of information (news sites, media outlets, etc.) By utilizing a blog, the blog owner can choose to syndicate anything they post, “pull” in syndicated information from other sites and utilize the features of a Web 2.0 rich, site… i.e., one that allows shareable and/or 2-way communication(s). © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Visual Example of my web log (blog) site containing many RSS feeds: © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education You can share the information on my site by choosing any one of a number of social “bookmarking” options. In the sidebar you can see that I’m syndicating my own posts into a summary of “Recent Posts”. I’m also showing off how many “feed readers” are reading my R.S.S. feeds. More RSS on the site… © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education In the right sidebar, I’m pulling in a number of R.S.S. feeds of related information that may be of interest to my readers, You can also see this in another location, “Great Articles”. My R.S.S. feed is also being turned into a printable PDF or “Feed Journal”. Using an RSS Reader Like Blogbridge, iGoogle, or your internet browser… IE7, FireFox, Opera, Safari, etc. An RSS reader allows you to “pull in” and read all the information you want, from as many sources as you want, into one location.

Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education How much does it cost to utilize RSS… Nothing… other than your ability to access the internet and utilize web software that has RSS built-in like the following FREE services: WordPress Blogger Typepad Most Web 2.0 software… © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education How much does a person REALLY need to know to utilize RSS? If you utilize any of the software that was on the last slide… literally almost nothing. Today's software creates all the RSS feeds automatically. The issue becomes getting your RSS feed “out there”. In the blog world, this is quite easily accomplished through interaction with others writing similar sites (posting in comment sections, utilizing blogrolls, submitting to blog directories, pinging, etc.). Once somebody finds your RSS enabled website, they can choose to subscribe to your site. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education What about the people that have a site that isn’t RSS enabled…and nobody is finding my RSS enabled site anyway… There are many free services that will create a RSS feed from any “standard” website. However, these RSS feeds will never be as “informative” as a website that has the “RSS self-creating” feature built-in. To answer the 2nd part… most likely you haven’t spent the time to make the search engines and others interested in your “niche” aware that you exist. This really deals with a topic called SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and if you are a publisher trying to “light a fire” under your product or work, this is something that you NEED to understand… a topic for another time! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M.

Syndicating Your Voice on the Web: R.S.S., Web 2.0 and Education Hello? Can Anybody Hear Me? A presentation by Dr. Joseph M. Pisano What is “Syndication”? When material (media, information, etc.) is supplied for re-use for inclusion or integration with other materials. The original material(s) is duplicated, integrated, and distributed. In the digital “web” world, “syndication” often refers to the sharing of material on one website with others though some type of distribution network. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Is Syndication “Publication”? No. Something has to be published before it can be syndicated. Yes. You can distribute a “work” through syndication simply by allowing others access to your work. Through the “syndication” of your “publication” others can have copies (exact or otherwise specified) of your work. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education A shift in the way we gather information from the internet… Gathering information, such as news, from the web before the widespread usage of internet-based syndication forms: A search is performed using a typical search engine (Google, Yahoo, etc.) Information is returned from the engine, the user analyzes the information, the user goes to the page they decide has the most related information to his/her initial query. This is repeated again, and again… The user searches and opens a related website… Once a website is found to be “re-usable”, the user can save time by going directly to the website using a “bookmark” or direct link to save some time. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education A shift in the way we gather information from the internet… Gathering information, such as news, from the web utilizing syndication. THE SAME: A search is performed using a typical search engine (Google, Yahoo, etc.) Information is returned from the engine, the user analyzes the information, the user goes to the page they decide has the most related information to his/her initial query. DIFFERENT: The user subscribes to relevant information (website source) via the syndication “feed” available from the website.. By subscribing, the feed is added to a “syndication reader”. Anytime the initial web source is “updated” or new content is added, the user is notified of the “update” immediately via the “syndication reader”. The need to actually visit the source site again is greatly reduced and the user can decide when he/she needs to visit the site again. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why in the “world” would I do this as an information seeker? To save time -to have exactly the information that you are looking for delivered to you without having to manually seek it, after the subscription is established. To be notified, immediately, of relevant updates, breaking news, new articles, new products, new events, recent changes in weather, alerts, new files posted, etc. Using syndication… information that is of interest to you…finds you! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why in the world would I want to do this as a publisher? To notify as many people of your “work” or “materials” as possible, with little to no money involved. To notify any subscriber to any change or addition to a product line, service, or whatever information that you want to relay as fast as possible. Using web syndication, you can literally “connect in” to very specific networks (other users with similar ideas, content, etc.) that will begin to syndicate your content for you! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why would a musician want to utilize syndication? To notify people of: The latest news about them or their group The latest soundtrack release The latest event they are performing at The latest event they are going to attend The latest anything that they want people to know about! To subscribe to any site that is offering: syndicated information about their instruments, related journal publications, information about new music and compositions, new videocasts and podcasts about technique or providing online lessons, concerts, tours, etc. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Why would a music educator want to utilize syndication? To inform their classes about: Assignments Related topics about their classes Related ensemble news Additional resources available To inform the community of: Their concerts and events Their classroom topics, policies, themselves… Any news that they have to relate to anyone To communicate with other musicians and educators about: Anything! © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education Can’t I do this with a simple website? Yes and no… A simple website is “static”. People have to find you and your website every time they want to know something. If you update information on your website, people may not come back to your site to learn about it (especially problematic if the information is time sensitive)… It can take a very long time for “new information” to populate across the web. A syndication enabled website allows others (subscribers) to find your site once, then be informed, almost immediately, anytime the site is updated or changed through syndication. © 2008 –Dr. Joseph M. Pisano, Syndicating Your Voice On the Web, RSS, Web 2.0 and Music Education The true power of syndication… Internet based syndication, when used to its fullest potential, allows you to gain control of the deluge of daily information and organize it in ways never before possible… both as a receiver of information and a purveyor of information.
