Automatic Blog Post Review Notification
Include a feature that allows for students to be automatically notified via email when their post has been approved or denied on the blogging page. It would be nice for students to receive a message of whether or not their post has been approved or denied, instead of the teacher having to approve or deny the post and then create a separate email to that student if their post has been denied. As a teacher, it would be so much more convenient if I could read their post, approve or deny the post, and then if the post is denied, also submit a comment to them explaining what they need to correct in the post for it to be approved. This feature would save me an extremely significant amount of time.
Students would also appreciate this feature because it helps them to conveniently track their blog posts, and ultimately their grade, instead of having to keep visiting various pages and refreshing to determine if their post has been approved.
It's a win-win.
