Blogging - The Practicalities

Moodle

It is possible to set up a blog in Moodle for individual student, group, or lecturer use. To do this, log into Moodle and, in your Moodle course, turn editing on. Then click on the Activities menu and select Campus Pack Blogs. Full information on how to set up blogs and the various options is available within the support section for staff in Moodle.

Alternatives to Moodle

Blogger.com and Wordpress.com: Both these websites offer free and well-established ways of setting up a blog. In contrast to Campus Pack Blogs, students can set up blogs themselves on these websites which can extend their skills and give them a greater sense of ownership and empowerment. The downside is that, as an external resource, blogs on these websites will not be backed up or supported by Birkbeck.
