All posts in Blogs and Journals


Instructors can use the Blog tool in Blackboard as another medium for reflective learning. Only other enrolled users in the course can view and comment on Blog posts, and Instructors can configure Blogs to be either graded or ungraded.


A Journal is a tool for self-reflection. A course can have several different Journals, used for different purposes (e.g. one Journal for field experience reflections and another Journal for reading responses). Only the student and the instructor are able to comment on Journal entries. Journals may be kept private between the student and instructor, or made public by the instructor so that all enrolled users can read all posted Journal entries.
