Not aware of all features

2018-01-19

I wish any integrated system or software could set up a way to record a live class post it to a course unit and have online student watch and participate as if they are a part of the on ground course.

Pros

I like the way I receive notifications when someone posts.

Cons

I wish it could Track attendance Or notifications when certain assignments are submitted

2018-05-07

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

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.

a Long Term User's Honest Experience

Check out my LinkedIn profile for more details.

Pros

It's full of examples I can show my students on how not to do UI and UIX 3.

Cons

Counter intuitive, clunky, awkard UI (User Interface) - improve it by hiring UI/UIX experts and giving them actual control over the app interface and functions. 2.

The only way to learn!

2018-02-11

Pros

It is very organized and helps keep track of all classes, schedules, and reports.

A Tugboat Amongst Speedboats

2016-12-14

While it lacks in overall usability, it does has a number of useful tools, as well as a number of third-party extensions developed through strategic partnerships.

Pros

Interoperability, software extensions, and ability to build and scale coursework.

Cons

The software is somewhat unintuitive, with a cumbersome and clunky interface. The user interface and user experience is in dire need of a facelift.

Functional Class Websites and Grade Management

Pros

I have experienced no bugs and it performs exactly as I expect it to.

Scrolling through the online gradebook is a pain. Also, it is not always clear what is visible to the students and what is only available to instructors.

Great Learning Management System

2018-05-14

Pros

Blackboard provided a perfect and easy way to facilitate online courses, with many helpful features including discussion boards, grade breakdowns, and easy administrative tools.

Ideal for schools and university institutes, but it is not the best for online training companies, it is very rigid it seems that you were on a university campus.

2018-05-09

Pros

It's not especially easy to use, and it's completely poor on mobile devices. for creators of content is a great tool, because it is almost impossible to get lost when designing and building an educational material, it is so intuitive that a long specific personal training is not necessary.

Cons

In intensive or massive uses it is very slow .. the interface for the instructor is not particularly attractive, lUI / UIX is complicated, you have to navigate a lot to reach the desired destinations ... the multilanguage support is very poor, if you do not know speak English, you're dead ...

Great start to online learning but can be difficult to use

2017-11-07

Pros

The menus are clean and simple Easy to navigate the menus, different screens and options Saves time and energy than going to an actual classroom

Cons

It is only as good as the instructor who sets it up. blackboard is easy to use, but if the instructor is not computer savvy (or lazy) then you can have a difficult time using the software.

Useful tool for online learning.

2018-03-19

It got the job done, especially after a class was created and populated.

Pros

Very useful for delivering content. As a student I used this software. It is tough to be an all in one stop, but BB has improved greatly over the years through trial and error.

Cons

Maintenance was easier, but took forever to establish for the first time.
