Making a blog assignment available in the interactive Course Schedule

Note that if you intent to copy this exact same learning activity in a different course you will need to repeat this step from within that different course.

Go to the Course Management section. Under Course Tools, click on "Blogs" and find your newly created blog listed. Go to the very top of your browser’s window—the top frame around your Blackboard page—select the URL and copy it. Next, go to your Course Schedule page by clicking on the link in the Course Menu. Click on the hidden action button on the right of Schedule to edit it. In the Content Information text box under the name, find the unit this blog activity belongs to and highlight/select the blog learning activity, then click on the "Insert/Edit Link" in or around the middle of the toolbar on top of the text box: it looks like a chain. [BEEP] In the window that opens, paste the copied URL in the Link Path box. Fill in a title, leave all as is and click on "Insert" at the bottom. Back in the Edit Item page, you now just click on "Submit" … Voilà, your students need only to click on the link in the Course Schedule page to find the blog activity they are so eager to engage in.
