Illinois Compass 2g, Commenting on a Blog

This page contains information about adding comments to a Blog entry in Illinois Compass 2g.


Because Blogs are meant to be read by others, students can comment on each others Blog entries, whether they belong to an individual, the Course, or a Group. The Instructor determines if comments can be made anonymously or deleted.

NOTE: Anonymous comments are anonymous to the instructor, too, so this option should not be used if you plan on grading participation and commenting. The Instructor can delete any user's comment by clicking the X. Comments cannot be edited after they are posted.
