Adding a Journal (blog) Entry
You can keep a journal (or blog) for reflection or as a diary.
- This can be a good way to keep a personal record of any academic or professional activity that might develop over time.
- Your Journal is built up over time by making separate mulitple entries. And these are shown in order by date.
- Your Journal is private to you unless to choose to share entries by adding them to a Page.
- Entries in your Journal can be added to Pages to evidence your thinking or progress.
To access the Journal:
Go to Content and click Journal.
Clicking New Entry allows you to start your Journal.
You need to give your entry a Title and then type into the Entry field. Note all the tools you can use such as formatting, emoticons, adding images, weblinks etc.
You can also add Tags to your entry or attach a file. This could either be a file already in your Content area or from your computer (that is then saved to your Content area at the same time!)
You could choose to save your entry as a Draft – meaning that only you can see it even if your Journal can be viewed with others.
You can also choose to allow comments or not.
When you have finished your entry, click Save entry.
Continue posting to your Journal by clicking the New Entry button.
Creating another Journal.
By default you have only one Journal but you can create others (maybe for other projects, purposes or audiences) from the Account Settings page. To access this, click the link at the bottom of the Journal screen.
From the account settings page, tick the box to Enabling multiple journals.
When you return to the Journals screen you'll see the Create Journal button.
To share your journal with others, place the Journal on a page and then share the page. See section (d) for instructions explaining how to create a page and see section (j) for instructions explaining how to share a page.
