Journals may be private, public, or simply between the student and instructor.
A Journal is self-reflective tool for students. Only the student and the instructor are able to comment on Journal entries. However, Journals can be made public by the instructor so all enrolled users can read all entries.
Group Journal entries can be read by all group members and the
instructor. There are two ways to create a Journal. You can use the
Tools drop-down list in a content area or use the Control
Panel method described below.
We suggest the default indexing option of Monthly to maximize student access to previous posts. Journal posts will not be available to students after the selected indexing period.
Instructors can edit basic properties of the journal or delete their own journals.
If a student is removed from the course, the student's Journal will be deleted. All Journal entries and comments are deleted.
To view student journal entries, click on the “down pointing arrow” underneath your name on the right hand side of the journal screen.
