Blackbaud Education Management Solutions (formerly Blackbaud K–12 ON Solutions)

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.

They have to try out within their own use case scenarios with a sample learner, and test the features of their course and delivery needs. As there is not a content structuring tool, the course author has to have expertise in content and instruction design to create their own materials. The rest is easy to test and check. Test it on all browsers and test the functionality under various internet service speeds.

Pros

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions (formerly Blackbaud K–12 ON Solutions)

  • 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

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions (formerly Blackbaud K–12 ON Solutions)

  • 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,.

WizIQ LMS

  • Although all are good but WizIQ needs to improve in these fields...It goes offline once in a while which is a headache as it needs to be constantly managed and needs to be kept under observation all the time.
  • It is better for less userbase management as its browser platform is not stable for a larger number of participants.
  • We need to manage each online department separately.
  • Audio sound needs to be more clear.

I need to overcome some of the important limitations which have been pending for more than 6 months indicating inability of the vendor or lack of clarity among the development team about what we want and how it can be done easily on their platform and MySQL at virtually no cost without ending up in a feature modification custom development and cost. Teaching and learning with respect to an Indian scenario is different and needs to be adapted to the local needs and realities.

I have understood and used most of it by now after 6-7 months of exploration and use. Though there are small glitches that could be easily resolved by WizIQ, I feel comfortable to handle the product by now. However, clients find it a challenge to explore and do not wish to spend time to learn

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.

Very responsive and accommodating during the sales period, then totally unhelpful, rude and dismissive when you are unhappy with the product. Now ignoring my messages.

It was a product presentation and not a live work through kind of training. I had to remember the presentation from remote and then go about the tool/ builder. It was difficult to handle and I had a lot of doubts and clarifications to address in my initial rounds of launching my courses.

I have developed my own expertise and that is for sale to my clients as a part of my consulting services. I have much to share for assignment and assessment models, course design aspects and mentoring aspects as this is a remote self paced service. If the courses are live and managed still there needs to be mentoring and support to help the learner.

Alternatives Considered

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions (formerly Blackbaud K–12 ON Solutions)

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

WizIQ is less expensive than Adobe Connect, comparable to Redbooth price-wise but better quality. Again, if I needed something more robust I might consider other options - but for what I need WizIQ has been perfect. It's a great product and a great value.

Return on Investment

Blackbaud Education Management Solutions (formerly Blackbaud K–12 ON Solutions)

  • 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.

WizIQ LMS

  • By using the WizIQ our team has launched more than 130 courses for internal staff capacity building.
  • We also monitor which learner is doing well in the overall assigned courses.
  • Created a list of courses which help everyone who is new to the organization.
