How to embed a Yammer feed into a Blackboard course

Yammer makes it easy to embed a feed into any Blackboard course.  Why would you want to do this?  Well, Yammer discussion feed feels more “live” vs a traditional discussion forum.  It’s also very Facebook like so it will be familiar to your students.  The feed can be accessed on both Yammer and Blackboard.

Here is how.

  1. Go to https://ecu.edu/yammer and login
  2. Create a group by clicking the CREATE GROUPS icon which can be found at the bottom of the left hand column.
  3. Once the group has been created scroll to the bottom of the right hand column and click the ” Embed This Feed in Your Site ”

  4. Once you have copy and pasted the code move into your Blackboard course site.   In any Content Area choose BUILD CONTENT / ADD ITEM.

  5. In the GUI area click the HTML button. Copy and Paste the Yammer code into this area. Click SUBMIT
