Add an RSS Feed to the Schedule

An RSS (Rich Site Summary) feed is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. For example, if your students are required to keep up to date on world events, you can add a news website RSS feed and the major headlines will appear in the BYU Learning Suite Schedule and Dashboard.

Note: RSS Feed information does not appear in students’ combined calendar.

 

Step One:

Enter your Learning Suite course and click on Schedule.

Step Four:

View the RSS feed information in your course Schedule. The feed will update automatically as the content changes. Students will be able to access the content by clicking on the links that appear in the Schedule. RSS feed information can also be accessed through the Dashboard.
