Creating a group blog

To create a blog assignment involving group work, in the Course Management section, the —the home office—, click “Users and Groups,” select “Groups,” then click on “Create” in the action bar. We recommend you create groups in one swoop: go under “Group Set” and select your options. --BEEP-- Choose a name for the whole set of groups. You can name this set starting with “Due” plus the due date, then add the word “group”. Blackboard will add a sequential number at the end of the group name to distinguish different groups. --BEEP-- Next, take a minute to briefly describe the group blog and the grading policy. If you use a rubric to grade the group blog, attach the rubric file by clicking the paper clip icon in the text editor toolbar.--BEEP-- Under Tool Availability, leave “Blog” checked and uncheck all other tools. Enable “Grading” for the blog. Add the rubric if you use Blackboard rubric tool, and make sure to check “Show Rubric to Students”. Leave as is the Module Personalization Setting and set up group Membership. --BEEP-- Hurrah! Click on “Submit” to create the group(s).
