If you are building and selling online courses - or even providing free courses to market your services, Kajabi is excellent.

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions

Blackbaud Education Management is a great tool for a K-12 school. Everything is integrated from students biographical information to family information onto Academics, Website and much more. We have truly become a paperless school and no longer take in school payments with all the forms that can be used with online payments

Pros

Kajabi

  • Ease of use
  • Reliability
  • Ability to brand
  • Ability to customize
  • Support
  • And I have to say it again, reliability
Ashlie Pappas | TrustRadius Reviewer

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions

  • Incredibly easy to use interface for the User (parents, applicants, etc.).
  • Ease of gathering data - Helpful lists, formulas, and reports.
  • Time saver - Especially in the Admission office. Since everything is done digitally from the user through the employee, there is no need to hand-enter data; you just click the button, and everything imports or exports as needed!

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions

  • Lists -unable to just create a simple list of say 100 students of varying grade levels. Need to export, then whittle the list down. Super time-consuming. Not possible to run a list and then click the students needed from there.
  • Reports - [I feel there is] not enough of a selection of "canned reports" and no ability to create your own reports
  • Advanced lists - [in my experience] THE WORST - again creating more work - I spent over 3 hours trying to make an advanced list of all NHS eligible students, that included email addresses for the students AND the parents. Way too difficult and needs to be simplified
  • Learning Profile: [I feel] Fields for the person creating a learning profile for a student are too small. It would seem like the developers creating this have literally no idea how complex some accommodations are. Many accommodations come directly from a physician.
  • Checklists: Should be in Academics not just Enrollment Management
  • Ideas: [I feel it's a] good concept, poor execution. Many of the people who are actively using BB do not have the time needed to submit an idea, know it even exists or have time to search and vote.
  • Some aspects of Enrollment management should follow a student into Education Management. For example, [I feel]The Candidate Summary should be viewable once the student is enrolled. Converting a process from all paper to electronic-only works if the information is accessible to all pertinent staff
  • [I feel] There are many more - do better!!!

It is a solid product. We have some issues with the capabilities of the website building components and the out dated technology behind its communications software but overall Blackbaud Education Management Software services to combine numerous functions into one product.

I find the user interface very friendly. It is easy to locate information that you need fairly quickly. The grading set up is a bit complex and there are so many areas that have to be set up. I feel that this could be simplified and redone. Also the athletics set up area and advisory could use an overall to be more consistent with the main functionality screens.

The Kajabi Support people are helpful, fast and knowledgeable. I usually call in a panic - because I have lost something, messed something or am on a deadline. Sometimes we speak, or we do a chat. Always my angst is eliminated. I often thank the person for being "so patient" with me. LOL

Being new to Blackbaud the support team was my friend. I utilized the videos, online training & chat often until I got comfortable. The actual support people were friendly, helpful & knowledgeable even if you weren't quite sure how to explain your problem.

Alternatives Considered

Kajabi

We chose Kajabi because it can do so much. We didn't end up going all-in on Kajabi - our email is still with ConvertKit and our site is still on WordPress, but we're very happy with having our checkouts, courses, and membership content on Kajabi. We create some of our landing pages there, too, instead of on our WordPress site.

Blackbaud K-12 is very similar. I feel like I would be trading one set of issues for another so it's kind of a wash. We are very much hooked into the Blackbaud website with our Google SSO, SmartTuition, and Schooldoc integrations. It would be difficult for us to transition. That is the main reason I haven't really entertained other web firms.

Return on Investment

Kajabi

  • It's saved hours (and tears) by having a managed course platform
  • It's provided an outstanding end user experience increasing customer retention
Ashlie Pappas | TrustRadius Reviewer

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions

  • Connect RE is awesome and saves so much time versus manually updating information in both the Core and Raiser's Edge systems.
  • We are about to upgrade to Tuition Management which will pull data from Core and save so much time on manual entry! Plus, it will be so much easier for parents to pay on time through a credit card versus a check, therefore, improves our ROI drastically.
  • Ideally, Raiser's Edge NXT web view would have all of the capabilities as a database view, but I know it will take some time to get there. The Database view is just extremely outdated looking and not in the Cloud, so I can't log in to it from just any computer without downloading Citrix. Can be frustrating sometimes with how slow it is.
