You can edit basic properties of a journal topic, including the name, instructions, availability, and some settings. You can also edit any user's journal entries and delete journal topics and comments.
If you no longer need a journal, you can delete it. Deleting a journal is permanent. On the Journals listing page, select Delete from the journal's contextual menu.
If a journal is gradable, the Delete Confirmation page appears. You need to perform extra steps to remove a gradable journal.
If you want students to access the journals 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.
