We're using 1.9.7 and the Journal module came pre-installed by the hosting provider and I have faculty who are interested in using it. We have some questions though:
1. It's unclear what causes the journal activity to be time-limited to open only once the week it is deployed arrives. What is the pedagogical strategy behind the idea that journal activities ocurring in later weeks are locked? Can it be turned off so students can complete a later journal entry before the week arrives?
2. What exactly does "Days available" mean? If it's set to "5", does that mean the student has 5 days to submit the journal activity? 5 days from when? On the other hand, does it mean they have 5 days *after* submitting in which to edit their entry?
