Creating a Blog Post 

The blog entry is the written portion of AfterClass‟s Multimedia Blog. This is
where teachers will write comments, questions, essays, observations, or any
information that they would like to share with their students. There is no limit to
the amount of written content that can be added. 
 
1.  Give your blog a title, and populate the text box with what you would like
to discuss. 

2.  The “Share with my Colleagues” allows you to share this post with other
teachers in your school, and even publish to the “Idea Exchange” library.

3.  You can also add a topic to your blog. These topics will help users search a
teacher's blog for posts that contain a particular tag. Teachers can search for
topics using the “Browse Topic” button, or type in their own topic. Some
examples of topics are: the Great Depression, or Historical Viewpoints and 
3 Perspectives. The teacher's multimedia blog page will display the top five topics. 
 
4.  The “More Options” link allows the blog owner to designate when a post will appear, as well as which
classrooms the post will appear in. 
 
Please note: The list includes all groups that the owner is an administrator of, the posts will only appear in
Classrooms, Student Groups, and Athletic teams. It will not appear in any of the other group types even
though they are included in the check-box list. 
 
You can choose to post your blog immediately, or save it as a draft. Drafted blogs will appear on the
Multimedia Blog page to only the blog owner.  To edit a saved blog, clock on the pencil icon, and make
any necessary changes. Select Publish and the blog will be immediately available for commenting. 
 
Once a blog has been published, the owner has additional editing options.  Select the “Admin”
button to set these options: 

Allow Further Discussion: This allows the post owner to prevent comments from
being added to the selected blog. By default this is set to “Yes”, which allows discussion. 

Anonymous Discussion: By default the AfterClass system requires that users have a login to the
organization to post to a blog. This setting allows anonymous user, in other words users who do
not have a site login, to post to the selected blog. 
(You must use this setting to enable comments until September of 2009)


Private Moderation:  This affects who can approve comments belonging to this discussion. It is off
by default, which allows all moderators to approve and ensures the most rapid comment approval.
Setting this to “yes” means that only the blog owner can approve comments in this discussion.
Please be cautious when using this option, and understand the full implication of this choice. You
must be an active moderator in order for this option to be successful. If comments are not
approved in a timely matter, the overall conversation will be stifled. 
 
Highlight comment Age: This highlights comments within the blog, based on these ages:
o  Within the last hour
o  Within the last 24 hours
o  Within the last 72 hours
o  Within the last week
o  Older than a week. 

School-wide Participation
: Setting this to “No” limits the users who can participate to the members
of the classrooms, student groups, or teams, that were selected under “more options. All users in
the site will still be able to view the blog, but not participate. 
 
To delete a blog post, please follow the steps below:
1.  Select the X icon, you will be asked to confirm the deletion before the posting is deleted. 
2.  Please note that any images uploaded within the Blog will be resized to 460 pixels wide to prevent
the blog frame from displaying incorrectly
