Pros

It's been a wonderful experience with Blackboard, i love how other applications integrate so well with Blackboard.
Blackboard is wonderful for students, it is very easy to use and they constantly do updates that help improve the system.
Overall I had a wonderful experience and I’ve talked to other students about their thoughts and the overall consensus was it’s great for the busy college student.

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.
I like that students are able to get the immediate benefit of connections with their instructor & classmates with the flexibility of being at home.

Cons

We ran our own host and it had nothing but problems, and I am not talking hardware. Every time we went to run an update, it broke something.
It has a bad UI and does not integrate well with other software solutions.
Everything about Blackboard is clunky — at least as it is set up in our university. Operations that should be drag and drop require multiple clicks.

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.

A decent LMS, but there are better ones out there that have less workability issues

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have used both Blackboard and Moodle in the past, and I found them very similar for what they offered. I would have been fine using Blackboard indefinitely had I not found out about Canvas, which is what we are using now and I am absolutely it's biggest fan!

Pros

I used Blackboard for almost 10 years, and it was a decent LMS for my needs. When Blackboard Collaborate came out, it was even better because it added a new layer of possibilities (I could have several webinar/conversations going, merge conversations, and/or present to different groups at one time). However, there were always bugs in the system, even though we updated constantly. The Blackboard app was also very limited.

Cons

Too many bugs and freezes; many of my students had issues with accessing links when they used different internet browsers. Good for a small school or business, but not larger ones.

Robust but not too friendly

Reviewed a year ago

It's somewhat easy to use for teachers, for the students it's set up in an easy to follow way.

Pros

Its interface allows the students to see all the content easily and you can keep track of who's been left behind.

Cons

Blackboard Collaborate is terrible, it kicks out students who have a bad internet connection and it takes up tons of RAM. We used it at the beginning of the pandemic for synchronous lectures and it was a nightmare.

My overall experience with blackboard collaborate is positive as I’ve used the system to learn new job experiences resulting in increased success.

Pros

What I like most about blackboard collaborate is the ability to connect a group of individuals located virtually anywhere in an online classroom setting.

Cons

what I like least about blackboard collaborate is the stability of the environment when large groups of people are connected. The system tends to boot people and/or results in a lot of lagging.

Blackboard Collaborate Makes Classes Easier

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall my experience has been nothing but positive. As a grad student as well as a Teachers's Assistant, Blackboard Collaborate has been truly amazing, and more people should considering engaging with tall the possibilities the software has to offer.

Pros

Blackboard Collaborate was a lifesaver for our school. While many teachers opted to use zoom for class meetings, we however were able to utilize Collaborate as part of or program. With minimal training and several tools for the teachers to use, Collaborate made the Covid semesters a breeze for our university. Students were able to easily log in and ask questions and listen to lectures with high-quality video and audio. Slides/Video/Documents were easily added to Collaborate for lectures and reviews. Not only were quarantine students able to utilize this software. Students who were able to join in class could follow along and communicate witht their peers as well.

Cons

The only downside is that blackboard is indeed a blackboard. Perhaps a more colorful layout could make the software more friendly.

Blackboard is User Friendly

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Blackboard is super user friendly, and has my classes and projects all organized for me. The home page is easy to read, and find what you need to go.

Cons

Blackboard tends to crash a lot, there have been many times where I could not submit an assignment because Blackboard was down!
