Creating Group Wikis
-Only group members can edit a group wiki, however all courses members can read group wikis.  The instructor can change the default setting to allow only group members to view the wiki.

See above video for Creating Group Sets. You must create groups and enable the Wiki function within the groups.
Creating a Blog
-blogs can be read by all course members
Creating a Journal
-Journals are a personal space for students to communicate with an instructor.  Journal entries are not visible to other students in the course.
