Journals

This tool provides students with basic journaling functionality within Blackboard.  Students submit journal entries through their Blackboard course shell and instructors may view and comment on a student's entry using comments or feedback during grading.

 

Simple Steps:  From the course, select Journals → click on Create Journal Entry → type your entry into the text editor box → click Submit.

Available Tutorials:

  • Create a Journal Entry (PDF)
  • Save and Edit Journal Entry (PDF)
  • View and Reply to Comments of a Journal Entry (PDF)


Explanation:  Students are allowed to submit journal entries from the web and instructors may view and comment on the entries by student or by date.  Journals are visible to only you and your instructor.  Instructors may assign journal entry grades to keep them private rather than using other features such as the discussion board or blogs.
