Private Course Journals

The TEL team have developed a tool which creates a private discussion space for each student in your course, so that individuals can post entries privately and receive feedback. Once a journal is created, all students receive a notification outlining the due date and students can access it via a browser or mobile device. Course tutors can monitor students via the Grades and  Discussions areas. Learn more in the below guid.
