It's easy to pass the benefits of journaling on to your course members in a way that is easy for you to administer and respond to. To use journaling with your course members, all you need to do is create a journal topic and assign it to your course. Your course members will be able to post entries that are private or share them with you. You will be able to comment on any entries, and so will other members of the course, creating a circle of inspiration and support. Your course can have as many journal topics going at one time as you like.
You can edit your journal topics by clicking the link View/edit journal topic then selecting Edit. After making your changes, you have two options. If you select Edit all instances of topic, then everywhere you have already assigned the topic, the changes will show up (so use this with caution as it may be confusing if the changes are not minor). If you choose Save a new version of the topic, your edits will create a new version of the topic.
Your course members will be able to read your journal topic and create entries from the Course Pad in their dashboard. They can choose which privacy setting and whether to alllow comments. If they choose "Only me" as the privacy setting, you will be able to see they wrote an entry but not read it.
Note: Make sure you put Life Coach Hub on your Safe Sender email list so that you are sure to receive important emails.
