using feed2js in blackboard

Alright, I hate Blackboard, but we’re using it at OSU. A month or so ago, Jon Dorbolo (of Technology Across the Curriculum) showed me how I can pull in an RSS feed into my Blackboard site using feed2js. You can go to this site, enter an RSS feed, and it will generate javascript text that you can put into a webpage.

I finally tried it today, and it’s great. Now I can use my account to tag interesting websites with “ws399” for the LGBT studies course, and the feed will get pulled into the “External Links” page on our Blackboard site:

You can also include a description of the link and a time stamp on the listing. Feed2js seems pretty handy at offering different options for how to present the feed you want. I like it.

    That’s really neat. (and that’s saying a lot given that this post references Blackboard 😉
