I have had plenty of positive feedback on the RRSBus Web Part for SharePoint from the post this morning. Thank you for those who also pointed out the dodgy background music which I missed as I had my machine on mute so hadn’t noticed! Apologies. If you are like Chris, one of our developers, having watched it today you might have wanted some useful audio. I am pleased to say that RSSBus themselves have posted a video today which is fairly useful. Chris has also kindly agreed to put together half a dozen examples of the Web Part in use in an educational context to give you some ideas.
Well over the last few weeks I have been taking a well earned break from front line education whilst playing with bits of SharePoint here and there. One of the things I have been focusing on is looking in more detail at SharePoint Products on the market which will significantly enhance our Twynham SharePoint development. One of the most impressive is a product called RSSBus WebPart for SharePoint. This tool is simply fabulous and allows you to integrate a rich and wide range of data into SharePoint sites from both internal and external sources. Best of all no programming skill is required!
I plan to produce some educational examples of how this webpart can be used and the great news is it would appear you can get it for free for a ten user license for a short time. For the time being take a look at this video I found on Youtube which outlines the general functionality. You can get a trial download here.
