RSS Feeds for Medical Education

I've just noticed that there is a lot of talk about RSS in the medical education community. I'm attending the annual MedBiquitous conference and have heard several people talk about the adoption of RSS for enhancing medical education.

One example, medical publishers are using RSS to feed information about the latest medical journal articled to subscribers.

I've thought about RSS for TUSK, our learning and content management system at Tufts University. At a mimimum, we could provide a student with a feed that has his or her announcements and timely information about evaluations, quizzes, grades etc. Even more advanced would be a feed of content that is made popular by their peers, or content that has been recently added or changed.

Funny I should mention it, looking at the day's sessions I see that there is a presentation later today that is dedicated to using RSS.
