Blogs and Wikis

Please note that the Campus Pack blogs and wikis within Blackboard will not be phased out in June as originally planned. This is in response to a number of staff who prefer the Campus Pack blogs and wikis to those that are native to Blackboard. You will now have a choice to use either Campus Pack or Blackboard blogs and wikis through the ‘Add Interactive Tool’ drop down list in your online course or program level shells. The Campus Pack blog and wiki are clearly defined in the list and the Blackboard versions are just listed as ‘Blog’ and Wiki’.

It should be noted that each form of blog and wiki has their own relative merits. We are preparing some documentation that describes the functional advantages and disadvantages of each.
