A step backwards, another two forward

The computers in the computer lab were re-imaged yesterday arvo. This meant that the installation of Feedreader, and of course all of the configuration and feed details, were no longer there. In lesson today, students calmly set about re-installing Feedreader, configuring the proxy and setting up the feeds again. This took somewhere between 10 and 20 minutes. Well that was a step backward BUT we also made a step ro two forward because it provided the opportunity to talk about the Feedreader option to export an OPML file. Students will now keep an OPML file in their network folder to facilitate recovery in future.

We also thought that an OPML file could be created by one student (or the teacher) and then shared with the rest in order to get all of the required feeds. Now that's a good idea.
