Can anyone recommend a simple way to add RSS feeds as content items in 9.1. In 9.0 we have used the RSS Content building block developed by the
University of Cincinnati, but this doesn't seem to work in 9.1.
Yes, we were also using the U Cincinnati RSS feed building block on our BB8 server, but it seems to be very old and not very well maintained. I'm a bit surprised, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any other building blocks to include RSS feeds as content items.
Thanks, Mike. I've also now been told of a building block developed by Teeside University here in the UK (e@t RSS Feeds) http://eat.tees.ac.uk/ which works on 9.1
Thanks for the update, Roger! I know Teesside has done some very interesting Blackboard development in the past. Do you happen to know where this RSS building block is available?
I believe the person to contact is Richard Glover. (R.Glover@tees.ac.uk ). I have emailed Richard about it but haven't heard anything yet.
I have heard back from Richard now. They are hoping to put the code for the building block on OSCELOT at some point , but are very busy with an upgrade at the moment!
