For the classes throughout my degree program, this has been one of the most helpful tools that are available to us. The detailed explanations along with the screenshots of the tasks I am working on, have given me a comfortable learning environment where I am confident in a "real" network setting, the processes will come at ease

LMS aspect is extremely strong. The user interface is intuitive and pretty easy to learn even for less tech-oriented teachers and families. Initial set up is extremely cumbersome and needs to be thoroughly planned prior to beginning—there are nuances that will sneak up on you and cause issues if not considered well in advance. An example is setting up your grade plans correctly so you can have report cards appear as you want. Be sure you speak in-depth with your product manager about importing data from your previous SIS and understand what will and will not be imported. It is very difficult to harvest data for analytics and Blackbaud's current analytics package is not as robust as I would like at this point.

Pros

NETLAB+

  • I really like the way that the lab documents are set up. Sometimes there is overkill on the explanation, but I have come to appreciate the repetition, because with the long term use and repetitions, I have gotten very comfortable in a virtual environment.
  • The topology set up is usually very easy to follow, and very clear as far as what is where and how to find what I need to find. There are a few things that typically have to be adjusted to fit our class need or learning objective, but NETLAB is very adaptable in that sense.
  • I like software/programs that can be accessed from the internet rather than an app or installation on one certain machine. This makes it very accessible, at any time of the day or night. If it were an actual live server access portal, this helps increase the security of the company, by having access lists, etc set up. NETLAB has all these capabilities as well, and accessibility is important to my industry

  • Customer Support: Overall, the majority of analysts are knowledgeable and helpful. If they are not able to directly help with an issue they will escalate to appropriate departments and keep you informed of progress.
  • Partnerships: While the EMS can act as the whole solution, not all schools fit that mold. K12 Partnerships allow institutions to find the best individual fit while remaining connected via API/SSO, etc.

Cons

NETLAB+

  • The inability to save progress! :-) As we go through the labs, time can be a very stressful aspect if I don't allow for enough in the beginning or underestimated the time it would take to complete.

  • There should be the ability to making changes to the interface to help the visually impaired.
  • The changeover to the Blackbaud ID was unnecessary, consider restoring LDAP.
  • Some of the management interfaces to do tasks in Core are clunky, they could be redesigned to be more clear and streamlined,.

So far I have not run into problems with contacting support but have heard that sometimes support is hard to reach or does not give you a helpful solution. Although, to be fair, I have not really asked advanced questions. I feel we need more time with implementation support and it made us felt very nervous about having everything implemented correctly.

I was not part of the decision & implementation process. But NETLAB as far as our other programs is at the top, because it is very easy to use, and I have very few reliability issues. I don't have crashing machines, and the detailed labs make it easy to follow.

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 and Connect5 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

NETLAB+

  • I don't have any decision making authority, or implementation, I am the regular user. So beside the positive impact to my learning, I am not sure. But as for the learning objectives, NetLab has such a huge library of labs, and extra learning that we can take advantage of.

  • The Enrollment management is a GREAT improvement from using Net Community. It use to take several minutes to set up a contract for one student. Now it is just a couple of minutes.
  • In Admissions the applications just need approval in Net Community it was a big syncing process that took a lot of time.
  • The website is very easy to use with uploading photos and text. It is great that you can have so many styles to apply.
