The problem

The Problem

  • Many RIT departments lack the skills and/or resources to generate RSS-compatible news feeds for use in the myRIT web portal.

  • News portlet content must be owned and managed by the departments; data source cannot reside in a central location.

  • Departments have varying degrees of technical aptitude; some may only have marginal web/HTML experience.

  • Departments may have different tastes and usability preferences; possible challenge finding a solution that provides unilateral appeal.


Solution what to build

  • Web-based tool which provides:

    • RDF Site Summary (RSS) Feed Generator
