Bb 9 - Blogs and Journals

New tools available in Blackboard 9 are Blogs and Journals.  Here are some videos that show you how to add them to your class and post to them.  You can provide links to these videos within your course for your students to view to explain to them how to use these tools.  These videos aren't perfect for student use because some instructor view stuff shows on the pages, but I think it's better than having to create instructions yourself.  See my recommendations below for alternative ways of providing links to these tools within your course.

  • Creating a Journal
    (I recommend creating a link to a specific journal using Collaborate > Create Journals from within your content area instead of the process shown in this video)
  • Creating Journal Entries (for students)
