Pros

It's been a wonderful experience with Blackboard, i love how other applications integrate so well with Blackboard.

KN

Kennis N.

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.

MP

Michele P.

Blackboard is wonderful for students, it is very easy to use and they constantly do updates that help improve the system.

KH

Katie H.

Pros

I love that I can save pretty much anything to resources, and share it across my courses (I teach 18 classes as our teacher librarian), as well as share with my colleagues at different schools.

MM

Mindi M.

Schoology helps me to keep track of assignments, meetings and readings for the leadership program I am a part of. It helps me keep organized and on top of things.

DS

Danya S.

Overall happy, and on top of being a great tool, the customer service is amazing.

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.

TL

Tony L.

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.

RR

Richard R.

When you first enter blackboard it can seem hard to navigate and seem overwhelming for both student and teacher. The options for customization for teachers are somewhat limited.

JP

Jess P.

Cons

Does not work as well with Microsoft Office ans it does Google.

SM

Susan M.

It was difficult for students to find the materials they needed and it was difficult to post assignments.

CL

Cassandra L.

Students also struggled with how to turn in assignments and would do it differently.

Blackboard Learn

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Blackboard is one of the giants of the e-learning industry, so you can expect resourcing and the support indicative of a premier product. The mobile experience was relatively intuitive, which is a must in the current environment where students may be working full time while earning an online degree.

Cons

Compared to other learning management systems (such as Canvas or Schoology), Blackboard reflects the features and structuring of learning management systems of days gone by - specifically, it is structured most closely around a 'document dump' approach to online learning. This approach has been soundly refuted in the research, and while one can certainly design a quality learning environment, many of your end users will likely not have the discernment to do so. From a student's perspective, it is often difficult to access key pieces such as messaging and grades when enrolled in multiple courses at once.
