Only your lecturer/tutor can create a blog, but after creation, you can create entries. The blog topics appear in alphabetical order on the Blogs page.

  • On the course menu, click Blogs. (The access point to Blogs/ link on the course menu may vary depending on how your lecturer has set-up the course site menu)
  • On the Blogs listing page, click the name of the blog you want to access.
  • On the blog's topic page, click Create Blog Entry on the action bar.
  • On the Create Blog Entry page, provide a Title.
  • Provide text in the Entry Message text box.

you can use the tools available on the text editor to insert images, media, tables, emoticons, change font size/colour etc. 

If you dont see these tools appear on top of the text editor click on the down arrow on the top right corner of the text editor - see pic below

  • Optionally, in the Blog Entry Files section, attach a file from your computer
  • Click Post Entry.

Click Save Entry as Draft to save the entry for later posting.
