How do I create a Journal Entry?
This lesson will help students learn how to use the Journal function on Blackboard, and distinguish the journal function from the blog function.
Once you have chosen the course in which you would like to work, select "Tools" from the left hand navigation.
Once you have written your entry, click "Post Entry" at the bottom of the page.
How is this different from the blog function?
The journal feature allows for private communication between the student user and the course instructor. No other student in the course can view your journal or comment on your entries. The blog feature encourages group discussion and allows for comments on user entries. All students in the course can view your blog and leave comments.
