Blackboard Learn's Caliper Analytics stream emits a BlogEvent whenever a student submits a blog entry in an original experience course. Here is some of the key data that is associated with these events:

 

BlogEvent

 

object.id -  the primary key for the Blog

action - …/action#Create

extensions - contains a tag called bb:user.externalId with the batch_uid for the user

 

Sample Payload

 

Here is a sample of what an event payload might look like:
