Types of Assignments - Journals

Journals are primarily designed to be used as a personal space shared between individual students and the instructor, but they can also be made public for the rest of your classmates to view.

Journals work well for self-reflection, free writing exerices, and can also be handy for developing individual projects. For help formatting your text, see the Content Editor.

When you click on the link to a Journal, click the Create Journal Entry button from the top left.

Journals can be graded or not graded and the instructor may either provide you with a prompt or have you use it as a free-writing space. Watch the tutorial below on how to successfully complete and submit a journal entry.
