  1. 1. How to set up a Blogger blog and write posts in it?

  2. 2. Irmeli Pietilä 2013 1 Setting up your Blogger blog Sign to your gmail account, and click More>Blogger in the ribbon menu on top of the window. Click New Blog. They next suggest Start blogging, but you should first check the Layout and some Settings! For that, Click the icon that looks like sheets of paper (see below) After that, Click settings on the bottom left margin.
  3. 3. Irmeli Pietilä 2013 2 Editing blog Layout and Settings Before you get started, you may want to watch Screenr videos showing how editing is done. Blogger looks have changed a little since I made the videos, but the basic ideas are still valid. http://www.screenr.com/U2d8 Blog Layout. Gadgets Labels, Followers & Bloglist. http://www.screenr.com/A2d8 Preview. Changing the order of the Gadgets. http://www.screenr.com/32d8 Settings: Basic, Posts and Comments, Mobile and Email http://www.screenr.com/NUd8 Settings: Language and Formatting, Other Labels makes it possible to filter posts according to label. For instance, if the students write a learning journal in the blog, you can ask them to label their entries with labels like ”plan”, ”reflection”, or ”3.1”, ”3.2” (assignment 3.1, 3.2) etc. This way it is easy to find just the relevant posts, when it is time to assess the student’s work. Followers gadget makes it easy to subscribe to students’ blogs, and add them to bloglist in the course blog. Bloglist is a convinient way to keep track of new updates. That is why I always add a bloglist of student’s blogs to the course blog, and encourage students to follow updates there, of even better, add a bloglist of their team mate’s blogs to their own blog.
