How do I add a Facebook feed to my Blackboard module? (Staff)

Facebook can be a good way of communicating current news items and topics of interest to your students, but it can still be useful to keep these posts in one place. It provides users with the ability to create individual pages separate to their own personal page. These pages could be based on a particular module or department.

Blackboard allows you to add a Facebook link to your Blackbaord module so that all students can see the content of your page without having to sign up to Facebook themselves.

  • First navigate to the Facebook page that you are using in your teaching.

  • Make a note of the Facebook page ID :

  • Then go to your module in Blackboard, and the content area you want to add the link to.

  • Click on Tools, and Facebook Likebox

  • In the next screen, add the Facebook page ID you made a note of:

Click Submit

  • The Facebook link will now appear in the content area.
