Adding RSS feeds to Blackboard

Our Blackboard administrator keeps telling me that the ability to add RSS feeds directly to my Blackboard sites is coming, but so far it is not yet available on our campus installation. I’ve found a way around this limitation by using FeedBurner. I can set up a free RSS feed page at FeedBurner, and link it directly to an external link menu item in Blackboard. Then when students click on the link, the feed page displays in the main window. It’s not quite the same as having the RSS feed directly in Blackboard, but it does provide a workaround until better RSS support is added to our Blackboard installation.
