All staff and students at Marjon have access to the Edublogs blogging platform and can set up a site through the Marjon Edublogs homepage. Once you click the Get A Blog button you will go through the process of naming and setting up your site.
Setting up an Edublogs account
If you do not have an Edublogs account (and have not had one set up for you) you will be asked to set one up on the first screen of the Edublogs get a blog process, you will need to input your university email address to do this. Once you have set up an account you will be able to set up an Edublogs site. To set up a site straight away make sure to select the Gimme a Site! option.
Choose domain name and site title
The first step in creating a blog will be giving your page a domain name and title. The domain name is the name that will appear after site.marjon.ac.uk/ in the URL of the site and will be unique to your blog.
When setting up a blog you can set the privacy settings for your blog. This will specify who can access your site and how.
In order to set up your site you must select a template, this will set the basic layout and styling for your site. These templates have been set up for specific modules, however, you can choose a different template once your page is set up.
