Blackbaud Award Management (formerly AcademicWorks)

This system has all the intentions of being fantastic. It is a great system if you have scholarships that are blindly rated or scored, or if you have multiple users with a few scholarships each. However, as a college with hundreds of scholarships that have 200-300 qualified students for each one, it is difficult to have a blind process. Plus, if the university gave our college the ability to edit some things, they would have to give those permissions to every person with a login. Needless to say, the system is not quite equipped for multiple users within one university who all have different editing privileges. However, as cumbersome as it has been to learn and manipulate for our purposes, it has allowed us to award more funds than any year prior due to the ease of having all of the student data in one place.

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

While there are things that Rosetta Stone could do to help the teachers and district with providing educational data, I have seen a tremendous improvement in many beginning ELLs. This program has given them the confidence to move from silence in the classroom to be able to share their thoughts and demonstrate their grasp of the class material.

Pros

Blackbaud Award Management (formerly AcademicWorks)

  • All colleges and universities have differences in the way scholarships are awarded at their schools. AcademicWorks listens to the individual needs of each college/university/scholarship provider and will either add system enhancements or help users to find ways to best utilize the system to meet their needs/requirements.
  • The AcademicWorks help desk is very good about support. They are timely in contact and work to resolve issues quickly and effectively.
  • AcademicWorks has worked closely with our IT Department to ensure that the imports and the system will work efficiently despite changes and updates.
  • Students need to only complete one application to be automatically matched to hundreds of scholarship opportunities. This is a very efficient use of the applicant's time and efforts to apply for scholarships.

Cons

Blackbaud Award Management (formerly AcademicWorks)

  • Ability to personalize applications - we serve many companies, and we get requests all the time to use their logo, but we can't do that in AcademicWorks.
  • Selective reviews - some review committees don't want to review specific parts of applications, but we can't pick and choose which questions are reviewable for specific opportunities.

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

  • One has to have a high speed Internet connection to use Rosetta Stone. Not everyone has that.

Rosetta Stone is a very comprehensive program with several different components. In truth after an initial orientation by a teacher, students (adults or school children) are able to use the software and navigate through its sections.

Support Rating

Blackbaud Award Management (formerly AcademicWorks) 8.0
Based on 2 answers
I lean on our centralized Foundation for support related to Blackbaud Award Management. However, any time I've had a question they couldn't answer, they were able to get the support quickly and efficiently. I give an 8, versus a 9 or 10, because our centralized office has had some requests in for changes to the system that have not been made. Some parts of the system are not working for our purposes, and we've asked for some changes that should be doable. However, the time it takes to get universal changes made is quite long

I would have liked to give a 10 but there are some areas where Rosetta Stone could improve that would help those using it in an educational setting. That being said, I have seen such good results in my students that I feel this is a very worthwhile product. One of my biggest fears going into this new school year was that with all the changes being made to the Leaning English Language Programs in the district we might lose Rosetta Stone as a tool for our ELLs. I'm happy to say that the district also saw the value of this program.

Alternatives Considered

Blackbaud Award Management (formerly AcademicWorks)

AcademicWorks is the first product I have used for scholarship management. I have heard of other services but have not have had personal experience with them.

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

I have used Memrise, Busuu and Duolingo which are similar language learning programs. I would rank any of those above Rosetta Stone. I don't see much "value added" from paying to use Rosetta Stone, and my students get more enjoyment from the other mentioned programs. I believe that comprehensible input is the best approach to language learning which isn't accomplished with solely online instruction.

Return on Investment

Blackbaud Award Management (formerly AcademicWorks)

  • We have seen improved consistency in review and award of scholarships.
  • We have seen a great increase in the number of annual applicants.
  • One stop shop for students so we feel it is very customer friendly as our students and their families are our customers.

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

  • The program has enabled the students who had no English when entering the class to be able to communicate and begin to grasp what is being taught.
  • Students have gone from silent bystanders to valued participants in the classroom.
  • The students who work with fidelity in the program become English proficient with more confidence and more quickly than those who dabble.
