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 best part is the friendly relationship we have with the Paradiso LMS staff and the good support given by them.
We are using Paradiso LMS from last 2 years daily and we are happy to tell you all that it's a awesome experience with all there features like gamification and interactive video.
We have been using Paradiso Educational LMS for a while now and we are very happy with it. Interface is very user friendly and it looks great.

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

They fact that it doesn't work with Shopify is the worst part.
There is no Shopify Integration as they suggest on their site and in sales calls.
I was having problems with my Moodle solution, it was so difficult I wanted to scream out loud. So I browsed for companies who develop solutions for LMS services and I bump into Paradiso Solutions.

The Standard LMS for Higher Education

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have used Blackboard at Fisher College over the last year and have used it periodically at the Citadel over the last 5 years

Pros

Blackboard is the IBM for Learning Management Systems (LMS) in Higher Education. It has most of the features found in other LMS products

Blackboard lacks some features other LMS products have for copy content between classes

Decent product

Reviewed 9 months ago

Blackboard is a bit more complex and layered than other LMS. I have had a better experience with their support team than other LMS

Pros

The best part about Blackboard to me is their new version Ultra. Ultra is a much more modern, user-friendly interface.

Cons

It is lacking a lot of features that other competing LMS have, for example, copying content across courses that will be automatically updated.

Knowledge of other LMS platforms. I was required to use it as a test to see if it could be integrated alongside another LMS test software.

Pros

No pros were added to this review

Cons

For me personally the interface was not intuitive for the task we were using it for. While I don't think this is normally used in a college-classroom setting we were considering it for that and it just didn't meet our needs. It may work for you

Pros

The software is adaptable to different ways of organizing a course and I do manage to use this software to help teach my classes.

Cons

Although the new update has improved the user interface somewhat, I still find it to less than user-friendly. You spend a lot of time entering test questions and the like. The video conferencing feature is very difficult to use -- you can't see everything you want to see.

Not user friendly enough to be efficient.

Reviewed 6 years ago

We have the Lite version of Blackboard LMS and even with on site training for our teachers the product is not user friendly enough for our teachers to use it. The usage percent of the LMS portion of Blackboard in our K-12 school district is 0% and we would no longer have this portion of it if it had not been housed under our web hosting services for a priced bundle. The Lite version of the LMS is hosted...

Pros

All of the products and integration that our school needs with an LMS.

Cons

The lite version is not user friendly and thus is not useable.

With districts that already use Blackboard products, it makes sense to go with their LMS.

Pros

With a large company comes great support and account management. Blackboard's team will be there to help train you and support you.

I've used it for 10 years and appreciate it for its familiarity.

It gets the job done, by which I mean that it has bare minimums of functionality for what you'd want from an LMS.

Super Functional Platform

Not the most ideal LMS for regular users visually and navigation-wise, however, you can count on it to get the job done.

Pros

It entails numerous features that are designed for the ideal LMS for different levels of education. It helped form the basis for other platforms.

Cons

The UI/UX is close to non-existent and needs a lot of customization and improvement. Unbeatable functionality but the ease of use and aesthetic is lacking.

Blackboard: The Gold Standard LMS

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, blackboard has been great to us. The only reason we left was due to the customer support (or lack thereof).

Pros

Blackboard set the bar so high many years ago that a lot of companies are still trying to catch up. They are innovators in the LMS world and there's a reason they've had such success and longevity. Blackboard is robust with what it comes with out of the box. As cliche as it sounds, Blackboard really is a one-stop shop LMS.

Cons

The Support Team on Blackboard could certainly be improved. Many of their technicians work weird hours due to being oversees so screenshare sessions can be difficult to setup. There is also a language barrier that makes troubleshooting more difficult than it should be. There is also a lapse in communication between their departments, so you usually end up telling 3 different technicians the same exact thing.

Tried, True and Old

Reviewed 4 years ago

The best thing about this platform is it robustness and age. It has years of development behind it which means that it's unlikely to break an supports nearly all external tools available for LMS'. Aside from that, it's clunky, un-intuitive, ugly and does not allow nearly as much customization as newer LMS'. Avoid this if possible.

Pros

- Robust and solid - Supports integration with many external tools

Cons

- Outdated design - Cluttered interface - Un-intuitive layout

Blackboard works well enough, still trying to catch up.

Reviewed 4 months ago

Blackboard works well enough for what we need to use it for. There are other LMS that work equally as well, if not better, so there is healthy competition to push Blackboard to improve.

Pros

Blackboard is a relatively stable platform with few major bugs that restrict users from completing tasks. It has a long history and many users are familiar with the LMS.

Cons

Some of the tools don't always work as smoothly as you'd like. They are making major improvements but there are still issues that come up to make it a cohesive experience and tools not feel as disjointed.

Great features, poor service

Reviewed 2 years ago

When it works, it's good overall. Takes sometime to load (more than other platforms), but once it loads, work just flows. A good feature is that it detects plagiarism on assignments. Not so good, when I attach microsoft office files, it tries to interpret them and most of the time, it breaks the format I set (i work on a mac, can't be sure if it happens for every user or it's lack of compatibility is just with the office for macos).

Pros

I'm taking several courses that are deployed on this platform. It looks very good and it's more or less intuitive. Looks full of features that you could need on an LMS.

Cons

I'm paying for the courses because institutions are supposed to pay for the use of the platform. But it happens frequently that the platform is down. Also, when I send a message to somebody using the platform messaging system, it takes up to 24 hours for the message to arrive to the person i'm trying to contact. When they reply, i get the reply 24 hours later (the message always says it was sent 24 hours before).

BLACKBOARD LEARN – you don’t know how good something is until it’s gone!

Reviewed 3 months ago

Blackboard Learn (BBL) was much better than we knew! You don’t always have control over what tools or LMS you have to use, but if you (or someone else) think that you’d prefer a different LMS - BE CAREFUL what you wish for! I loved the Grade Book’s versatility and ability to easily download it for offline management when needed. Also, when we still had BBL (yes, ‘they’ have switched us to a different LMS) I used it for online classes and as an e-Companion to onsite classes. Loading and transferring content and tests was pretty easy. I MISS BBL!

Pros

I found that Blackboard Learn is much easier to use than other online platforms used in higher education. Being able to easily add materials and instructional documents to an online course is critical especially when a department adopts a new edition of a textbook. The quiz/test builder within Blackboard Learn is also quite user friendly and being able to export exams from a previous course and import to a future course is a real time saver!

Cons

The discussion board when entering grades can sometimes be a little confusing, trying to determine if the student is replying to a classmate’s post – especially if the student has not included the classmate’s name in their reply, but that’s really more due to a student not following instructions and not the program.

Reviewed 5 years ago

There is little question about the advantages of Blackboard over other lms; however, the cost for using it year after year is a problem that bears consideration prospectively.

Pros

I like its many features, from the journal to the discussion board and the integrated gradebook. The discussion board is especially useful, as it can be manipulated to affect teaching strategy and learning outcomes. The gradebook is helpful because its weighting help students to understand where they are at all times in the course.

Cons

I do not like that, on occasion, copy and paste are difficult. I am not always happy with the ease of prioritizing items listed in certain aspects of the course.
