Blogs & Journals
Blogs are generally used to allow students to regularly post responses that could be read by a group or the whole class, though they can be made private. Journals function in much the same way, but are generally setup to be private and are read only by the instructor or graders.
One benefit of using the Blog or Journal is that you can quickly see the work your students are doing.
No SearchingCaution: The Blog & Journal tools do not have a "Search" feature allowing you to find all posts made by a student. If you expect a lot of graded activity, you might consider the Discussion Board which can be searched.
