You can edit basic properties of a blog topic, including the name, instructions, availability, and other custom settings. After a blog topic is designated for individuals or the course, you cannot change it to the other.
You can edit any user's blog entries and can delete blog topics. You can also delete comments, but cannot edit them.
If you no longer need a blog, you can delete it. Deleting a blog is permanent. On the Blogs listing page, select Delete from the blog's contextual menu.
If a blog is gradable, the Delete Confirmation page appears. You need to perform extra steps to remove a gradable blog.
If you want students to access the blogs tool often, you can add a link to the course menu for one-click access to the tool. You can customize the name of the link as needed.
