- To view the blog entries of other students, locate the Navigation block and click the Participants link. You will now be able to reach the individual profiles (and blogs) of other learners
- If a blogging task is to be part of a particular course, the Blog Menu block provides useful extra functions and is worth adding to the course page (see Miniguide M07 Organising Blocks)
- Another blog-related block is Blog Tags which displays a list of blog tags (keywords describing a blog entry) where font size visually indicates how many blogs are tagged with that keyword. The more frequently used blog tags appear in a larger font size and the least used appear in smaller fonts. This format is sometimes called a "tag cloud". The aim is to visually identify what are the most common subjects blogged about
- RSS feeds from external blogs, such as Wordpress, can also be added so that entries are automatically included in your Moodle blog. Go to the Settings tab, then Profile settings, Blogs, Blog RSS feed. In the URL box, add the RSS feed of the blog you wish to register.
If you find any inaccurate or missing information you can even update this yourself (it's a communal wiki).
