Explanation: Blogs are another type of communication tool provided through Blackboard that serves a variety of functions. With Blackboard, blogs can be used as a group tool as well. Entries are organized in reverse-chronological order from most recent to least recent. Typically, blogs are entered in a stream-of-consciousness format, meaning that there is not necessarily a rhyme or a reason as to how entries are posted. Your instructor may however, provide structure to your class blog to help them assess your conceptual understanding.
