Moodle RSS Feeds

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Moodle has a block which allows you to capture outside RSS feeds or podcasts. For example, if you are teaching a health course, it might be helpful to add or subscribe to the New York Times Health UpDate podcast to your Moodle course. Podcasts are generally free from online providers and automatically update content.
