Q. How do I create Journals in NILE?
Journals have a very similar interface to that of Blogs - the main difference is one of privacy. Journals created on the site will contain entries that can only be viewed by the student or instructors on that site, unless the default settings are over-ridden. Journals can be graded - even if this is not need as part of an assignment, you can monitor submission activity by looking at the Grade Centre. Please be aware that Journals created within a Group will always be visible to other group members - a Smart View associated with a graded Journal is the easiest way to manage Journals within a Group.
