If you are not using groups already in the course, you could place each student in a group of one and use a forum set for separate groups. This way, each student would only see his or her forum. Another strategy would be to use a wiki, set to Student mode, which allows only the student and teacher to view & edit. Wikis can have any number of pages, so a student could have a single page, a page that would hold a week's entries, or separate pages for every day.

I need to do some more research on it. According to the help menu the journal feature was changed with v.1.5 and put into the assignment area - haven't done the research yet. The teacher doesn't want to use a forum because she wants to keep it private, but she still wants to do prompts. If anyone knows more about this, please post!

I tried the journal function but it only allows for one entry. I was hoping for something that only myself and the student can see and I can comment on.
