In the example above, the student added his last name to the file name before uploading. H The instructor added a grade and feedback for the student. Student Experience The Journals Tool Journals are a personal space for students to communicate privately with the instructor. The owner of each journal can create an entry and the instructor can add comments. When used in the Group area, all members of a group can view each other’s entries, but the Group Journal can only be viewed by the group and the instructor. Journals are ideal for individual projects. For example, in a Creative Writing course, the student can refine a section of a writing assignment over a period of time by using the comments made by the instructor. Journals can also be used as a self-reflective tool that allows students to post their opinions, ideas, and concerns about the course, or discuss and analyze course related materials. These assignments can be broad and student-directed as the students reflect on the learning process and document changes in their perceptions and attitudes. Students can describe problems faced and how they solved them. Instructor-directed journal entries can be more formal in nature and can narrow the focus by listing topics for discussion. QUICK STEPS: accessing the Journals tool 1 On the Course Menu, click the Tools link. 2 On the Tools page, click the Journals link.

Page 63 Groups and Assignments Student Experience The Blogs Tool A blog—a shorthand term that means Web log—is a personal online journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. Each blog entry can include any combination of text, images, and links. Blogs encourage people to clearly express their ideas and addresses the need to expand various aspects of social learning. Blogs are an effective means of gaining insight into students' activities and provide a way to share the knowledge and materials collected. In Blackboard Learn, only enrolled users can view and author blogs. The owner of the blog creates multiple entries over a period of time and the instructor and course members can add comments. In the Group area, all members of a group can create entries for the same blog, building upon one another. Any course member can read and comment on a Group Blog, but cannot make entries if not a member of the group. Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject. In a course setting, blogs become the perfect arena for students to display their research, analytical, and writing skills. For example, in a Horticulture course, students can track the crop production in their weekly labs with each blog entry. In a Qualitative Research course, students can speculate on and monitor the impact social networking has on marketing over a period of time. QUICK STEPS: accessing the Blogs tool 1 On the Course Menu, click the Tools link. 2 On the Tools page, click the Blogs link.
