Tech Tuesday – RSS Feeds in Your Blackboard Course
It might be handy to have a live feed from a news blog, or any other blogging site updating dynamically, in real time, inside your Blackboard course. For example, maybe you would like your students to see all the great posts that are added weekly to the UAS Tips for Student Success blog. It’s easy to add this to your Blackboard class.
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to do this!
Technical Note: If on your Blackboard page you have text and code, when you edit the text after the code has been placed on your page, the widget will break when you resubmit. A good work-around is when editing, click on HTML and copy the code and erase it from your editor. Then, go back to your visual editor and make all necessary changes to your text. Finally, return to HTML button and re-paste the embed code for the RSS feed. This sounds a lot harder than it is. Just realize, text edits might force you to re-paste your code.
