Blackboard Learn: Student Engagement & Collaboration at its Finest

Score 8 out of 10

  • Blackboard Learn successfully houses all the student resources and interactions successfully.
  • Blackboard's reporting analytics are sophisticated but SUPER COMPLICATED to run/decipher. As a faculty member, I have no ability to run reports or more effectively analyze interactions in the classroom. I know Bb has the capacity to help me use these data but the complicated learning-curve makes it prohibitive to me.
  • It supports our collaborative nature by providing a platform for and the ability to connect many people from different venues.

  • The Blackboard grading system allows student progress to be easily tracked throughout the semester.
  • The online exam system allows for randomizing of questions from a bank to ensure academic integrity.

Blackboard, providing new add ons at the expense of the core experience.

  • Blackboard Learn allows students and instructors to better communicate assignments and grades, and connecting this system directly to our SIS has been hugely successful to increase adoption.
  • Blackboard Learn takes a lot of resources to help train and troubleshoot. Instructors starting off have a very difficult time exploring the options, especially when there are different versions and features across various institutions. Having a more streamlined offering would allow for better self-help options.
  • Blackboard Learn has enabled newer technologies that allow us to customize in a web-first manor. This is crucial to moving forward with the platform.

  • It's full of examples I can show others on how not to do UI and UIX.
  • Easy to navigate.
  • Announcements, quizzes, compatible with TurnItIn assignments, makes grading simple. Easy to communicate with students and provide information regarding assignments. Posting media is also simple.

Making the most of a Blackboard Learning Management System

Score 5 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Return on Investment

  • Having an LMS such as Blackboard allows for the school to expand its online offerings in a scalable way and increase the student body beyond the limitations of a physical campus.
  • Blackboard requires a lot of support. Depending on the size of your institution you will need multiple IT professionals to troubleshoot and train your staff on how to properly use it. For an online program, a 24 help desk is a must, Blackboard's support services to students are minimal
  • Using an LMS and getting people off the 'paper and pencil' model has lots of positive effects on the environment and gives your organization access to a detailed level of data you would otherwise never be able to achieve.

  • It has really helped reduce time for trying to track progress for student organizations. At first, we were using a spreadsheet, but when we switched to BB, it made life so much easier and freed up a lot of time.
  • Students are able to consistently see their grades, so tracking course progress is possible and easy.

  • The overall cost for Blackboard Learn was not that much when compared to other software.
  • We've been able to save money by having faculty and staff that were already familiar with other Blackboard products so the learning curve wasn't as severe.
  • The interface made it better for students.
