Instructors can assign a journal to each user in a Course or Course Group that is accessible by only them and the user in order to communicate privately with the Instructor.
Users can post messages to the Instructor and the Instructor, in turn, can comment. Instructors can allow Journal entries to be read by the rest of the users in a Course. Instructors can grade Group Journals and apply the grade to every member of the Course Group.
Instructors and users can create and post Journal Entries or save them in draft form for later posting.
Journal Entries can be saved for later posting by clicking Save Entry as Draft. Draft Journal Entries can be viewed by clicking View Drafts on the main Journal page.
