Internal and External RSS feeds

Matthew Hope


MSc Health and Wellbeing


RSS (Rich Site Summary  or Really Simple Syndication) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works - such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video - in a standardized format. It's used to bring into your Moodle module, e.g., a relevant news feed, or a feed when a professional site is updated, external blog posts, or even updated content from somewhere in Moodle.

What did you do?

The Remote RSS Feeds Block in Moodle enables RSS feeds (either from an external site or from within Moodle activities) to be displayed on pages in Moodle.

e.g., BBC News feed
