Communication and collaboration is an integral part of Moodle. Moodle has several tools that you can use forcollaborating and communicating including forums, chats, blogs, wikis and messaging. Here we will look at the last three - blogs, wikis and messaging.
(You can click on blogs, chats or messaging above to jump to that section.)
Moodle has a built-in blog, online journal, for each user. You can access your blog from the profile page. To get to the profile page, click on your name at the top of the main course page (course home page).
To access your blog page, click on the Blog tab.
Use the Blog Menu to add a new entry, view your blog entries, set blog preferences or view site entries. The "View site entries" will allow you to see blog entries for all users in the Wake Tech Moodle site.
Creating a Blog Entry
To create a blog entry, click on "Add new entry" from the page or from the Blog Menu.
Enter the blog entry title and blog text. In addition to text, you can add images, hyperlinks and smileys to your blog entry. You can also attach a file by clicking on Browse. Select the file you wish to use and then click on Open.
Your blog entry can be hidden from other users by changing the "Publish to" from "Anyone on this site" to "Yourself (draft)."
You can also include tags for your blog.Tags will make your blog entry searchable and easier for you or other users to find. If you are adding tags, be sure to add them in lower case letters, separated by commas.
Once you have created your blog entry, click on "Save changes" at the bottom. You will be able to view your blog entry immediately. However, it may take 20 to 30 minutes for other users to view your entry.
