Pros

The overall quality, ease of use, features & functionality of blackboard make it a great software for college students and college campuses to invest in.
I really like the fact you can easily create teams, conferences and add users very efficiently. The sound and video quality are really good.
It was easy to use and I loved the simplicity of the layout.

Pros

Easy to use, can have many people on same call. Good quality audio and amazing quality for the video.
I love being able to stay home or in the office while having an important meeting with others and feeling safe during a pandemic. I also like that you can put a password so random people can't join.
Has great features like the ability to change the background, the ability to raise my hand and the fact that I can use reactions. Safe because each meeting requires a link, meeting ID and password.

Cons

The support was horrible, most of them are salesman and when they redirect to the specialist at the end is openning a ticket because they do not know neither.
Uploading finished assignments were a real pain. The documents videos needed to be no more than a few.
No direct integration for download the record of use you need to use api to get this information. We had a problem with the LTI the integration started to direct any group to the same room.

Cons

I think we were so overwhelmed by the zoom at this bad time that there is nothing to worry about.
If I do have problems sharing my screen, etc. then I have to typically leave zoom and re-enter the meeting. It always solves the problem but is an annoyance.
When I was using zoom for online class it was irritating everybody was lagging, you couldn't understand a word anybody was saying and the main problem was the lag.
