Book Cover Image--Example from Switch by Chip Heath and Dan Heath

Here is an example for how to post your book cover image to your lit circle blog. First, you'll need to be a member of the blog--these invitations will come to you via email as soon as the blogs are ready. They can't be created until everyone has listed their book choice in the Google sheet. Our D2L survey had some technical difficulties--thank you to everyone for checking the Google sheet and re-entering your book choice if needed!

Once you are in your group blog, simply click on New Post

and you will get a little window like this one.

Here you can insert your image by clicking on the little photo icon and enter your reason for selecting your image in the text box:

I chose this image because in the book one of the main concepts is having a BHAG--big hairy audacious goal. I like the play on words of making this sound like a bag, and I thought this picture was eye catching and funny.

Finally, click on the Publish Post button at the bottom of the window. You will also need to upload your image to the D2L drop box. Instructions for that can be found in the Discuss>Coffee Shop>Help! discussion section.
If you have any questions, please contact Debbie O'Doan, the Lit Circles Facilitator. Have fun!

  1. What account option are we supposed to use? Also, nothing shows up when I click on links above. Since this is not set up and the due date is approaching several of us are posting this on our course homepage blog.
