Post a Journal Entry

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

JOURNALS can be used by students for private reflection or private communication with the instructor. By default, journals are visible only to the student and the instructor, and only the student and the instructor are able to comment on journal entries. However, instructors have the option to make specific journals visible to other course users. Journals can be added to any Content Area or directly to the course menu by using a TOOL LINK.

  1. Navigate to the journal you want to post to, and then click the Create Journal Entry button.
  2. Enter a title for your post in the Title field.
  3. Type your post into the Entry Message field.
  4. If desired, add file attachments to the post by clicking either the Browse My Computer for local files, or the Browse for Content Collection for files stored in the content collection.
  5. Click Post Entry to make your post available to course users. Click Save Entry as Draft to continue working on your post at a later date.
