Canvas: Course Blogs

Summary

This article discusses using logs in the Canvas LMS.

Content

Issue

Canvas does not currently officially support course blogs.

Discussion

The Discussions feature in Canvas mimics how Blogs worked in Blackboard.

Solution

Consider using Discussions in place of Blogs. Discussions will be displayed in the course menu on the left.

Another solution is to use a third-party blogging utility such as Wordpress or Blogger (free tools) and then manually enter grades into Canvas if desired.
