RSS feeds provide lists of news items that can be clicked through to access the originating content. Using a RSS widget embedded into a Blackboard course allows you to embed news items from other websites. There are many RSS widgets available that offer embed codes and we particular like Feedwind which is highly customisable and currently completely free to use. This RSS widget will scroll automatically through news articles at a rate of your choosing.
Although Feedwind is incredibly simple to use we have written a short step by step guide which is available on our website amongst 350+ other Blackboard guides.
