How to make a blog post with an image
How to use the label gadget
Blogs need to be organized so that instructors and visitors can find your posts easily by course. To do this, you need to use the label gadget.
Blog Best Practices
It is important to be able to communicate what you did, why you did, and what information are you displaying with your map. There is no need to write a five paragraph essay with your blog posts, but they should follow any special instructions given in the assignment for the post and summarize what you are learning in class that week and explain your map. Being able to explain what you did is important so your instructors know you’ve understood what they are teaching and it gives you practice so that when you get a job in the GIS field, you are able to explain your work to your supervisor. Here are some examples of blog posts that we like:
Your participation grade assessed in all GIS courses will suffer each week/assignment you don't post to your blog.
You only need one blog site.
Yes, you will use the same blog for all courses in the Online GIS Certificate program. Just make sure your instructors know what the link is (and that it shows up on the main course blog after the first two weeks of class). Instructors share a blog list to help streamline this process.
Add the label gadget to your blog. Label each post according to course title or course number it's for.
The Labels option will only appear when you are publishing a post. Just write a test message and select a Label (or create a new one). Use "preview" to see the labels. Hit "Publish" when you are happy with your post.
