Blog Service

Description

Blogs usually consist of regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other materials such as graphics or video. Entries are often displayed in reverse-chronological order. An important part of many blogs is the ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format. The service can be utilized by individuals, for projects or for departmental blogs. For faculty it is recommended to use Blackboard for official class content such as assignments, notes etc.
