Canvas does not include a blogging tool at this time.


Some instructors may be able to create a similar experience to blogging using existing tools in Canvas.


  • A blogging assignment designed for communicating between students, may also work with the discussion tool.
  • A blogging assignment designed for reflection, may also work with the assignment tool.


This guide from Northwestern University also provides step-by-step instructions for using a combination of the group + discussion tools to replicate a blogging assignment: http://lmsblog.it.northwestern.edu/2014/12/02/student-blog-and-journal/.
