Question
What is an RSS feed?

Answer
An RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication) feed is a data format for sites that are frequently updated with new or changing content. When subscribing to an RSS feed, the browser will monitor the website for these changes so users don’t have to visit the site and manually check for new content. Users can also download desktop feed readers to aggregate data from many different websites.

NWEA uses RSS feeds to provide timely updates to our current product operational statuses, community content changes, blog posts, and more.
