An Edison user asked about getting his experiments' observations to route to his Twitter account. Here's how I did it for the @thinktrylearn Twitter account. Basically you use Edison's RSS feature, which is available for both an individual experiment or for all of your experiments. (The @thinktrylearn one uses the third RSS feature, all experiments.) I used twitterfeed.com, though there are other similar tools.
To find the various RSS feeds on Edison:
- Individual experiment: The feed is shown on the right sidebar under your profile information. The link is "Subscribe to this experiment". For example, my bottle good feelings peer experiment's feed is http://edison.thinktrylearn.com/experiments/show/368.rss.
- All of a user's experiments: Find the RSS feed link is in the same place, but on the user's profile page. For example, on my profile page the link is http://edison.thinktrylearn.com/experiments/profile/3.rss.
- All experiments: Again, same idea but the link is found on the All Experiments page, and is http://edison.thinktrylearn.com/experiments/index_all.rss.
There you have it! Anyone want to give it a try?
(Note: Currently the feed for group experiments is not showing. The work-around for the motivated user is to use the first type of pattern. For example, the RSS feed for the group experiment corresponding to my above peer experiment - bottle good feelings (Group) - is http://edison.thinktrylearn.com/experiments/show/367.rss.)
