Overall Satisfaction with Blackboard Collaborate

Blackboard is being used by the whole Campus of the University, and it is helping students to catch up on their course work and also be punctual on all their assignments as well as their lectures.

Pros

  • Fast synchronization accross devices upon a change
  • Well organized and simple to use
  • Able to take short quizzes and put a timer on them
  • Able to upload documents for assignments and provide a quick review of that document

Cons

  • First time users have it hard to understand how to use it. Maybe, provide a "User Guide for the first-time log in users" would help to navigate easier with Blackboard.
  • Access to all necessary course materials
  • Ability to communicate with fellow classmates and teachers
  • Ability to check course grades
  • Easy to set up a video-call meeting
  • Provides a good way for Professors and Students to communicate with each other
Blackboard Collaborate is the only program of this kind that I have used so far, therefore I cannot compare against other programs that are alike. But, I would say that I will be using this tool for a long time, because it offers me almost everything that I need as of right now.

Blackboard Collaborate Feature Ratings

Blackboard Collaborate Reliability

The reason for this rating is that the software is a pretty good tool that can be utilized for use in all of the Universities around the world. It has the capability to fulfill the needs of various different education systems. Although, there are slight improvements that are needed, therefore the rating is at 8.
The availability of the software is quite impressive. You can access it at any time that you want and from anywhere that you want, but that depends on how the software is set up by the University. There might be sudden outages due to not having enough space on your database, which we had that very issue happen recently here at our University. During that time, you could not access their blackboard at all until it was brought up online again.
The performance of the software is remarkable. The loading speed of the pages is more than satisfying, it all depends on the users internet package. So far, there wasn't any issue of Blackboard slowing down other software or systems when integrated with them.
