Go to the course area within Blackboard where you want your journals to reside and choose Journal under Add Interactive Tool
We have chosen to place the journals in the Course Documents area.
You can create a page on which all of the journals will be listed, or you can just create one new journal
Select "Create New Journal"
Enter a name for the journal, followed by any directions or description of its purpose
Make the journal available to students and determine the remaining journal settings based on your needs
The monthly or weekly Index entries determine how the journal entries appear to the student, either on a monthly or a weekly basis. Typically, and by default in Blackboard, a journal is private between the instructor and the student, so the last setting, "permit course users to view journal", is seldom chosen.
Your journal is created.
Click Next to initiate the link to the journal in your content area
Add text and options
Your new journal and its link have been created
