Hello and welcome to University of the People. In this tutorial, you will learn about the Learning Journal. Each week, you will have to complete a learning journal which can only be seen by your course instructor. In the learning journal, you will be assigned specific topics or relevant questions to discuss. The learning journal must be completed on a weekly basis, on the week in which they are assigned in the course. Your entries will be assessed directly by the course instructor as part of your final grade. We are now going to see how to submit your learning journal. The timing for submission of the Learning Journal is an exception because it closes at 11:55 p.m. on Thursday. This is so you have one more day to reflect on your learning experience of the past week. Let’s see a learning journal in the fourth week of the course. Click on the link. You will find the description of the tasks you need to accomplish and the due date for the submission, which is always on a Thursday. To start writing, click “Add submission”. You will see the description of the task above, and a place to write below. You can write your submission directly on the online text window or you can write your submission in a word processor and paste it to the online text field. Try not to use emojis, icons or special bullet points that you copy and paste from Word. If you use them, you might receive a special error message: “Error writing to database” and your submission will not be received. I will show you an example of that happening. Click on “Save Changes” to submit. We are getting the error message, let’s go back. Now let’s post the same thing, but without the offending character. Now you can submit and move on. You need to verify that your submission is readable and has been saved. If you write directly or paste from word, but accidentally delete your post before you submit, it won’t be possible to recover it and you will receive a zero. This submission is still a draft. By clicking “Edit submission” you can add a sentence. Consider that instructors will not grade drafts. They may do it, but take off points, or simply ignore them. Now that it is final, you should press “Submit assignment”. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to do any more changes after that. Click on “Continue”. Now it has been submitted for grading. Congratulations! We hope this tutorial has been helpful for you. If you have any questions, please contact your course instructor or your program advisor.
