A Journal is a tool students can use for self-reflection and sharing opinions or ideas.
Only the academic and the student can add and view comments to Journal entries, however, there is the option to make journals public.
You can choose to allow students to participate in journals in four ways:
You can remove a Journal post by selecting the drop down chevron next to the post title and selecting delete. This cannot be undone.
You can remove a Journal comments by clicking on the red cross next to the name of the person who made the comment. This cannot be undone.
Students can remove posts and comments if this option has been made available in settings.
You can view students' progress via:
If a student has reached the required number of entries for the journal, the Needs Grading icon appears. The In Progress icon appears if the student has not reached the minimum number of posts that has been set or the Show participants in needs grading status check box was not selected.
NOTE: Instructors will only be able to see students that have submitted inside the journal tool. To identify students who have not submitted view via the grade centre column.
