Overall Satisfaction with Blackboard Learn

Blackboard is used as a platform for students to send and receive school work. This program is operated by teachers as a web-based user software device to connect them to their students. It is incredibly important now due to the current world events regarding distancing.
  • It does what it is intended to do such as connecting students and teachers alike.
  • It allows teachers to upload assignments online to eliminate the use of paper.
  • Good platform to take tests and quizzes.
  • Sign-on errors are common and it may inhibit the students' ability to submit and receive assignments as directed.
  • It is hard to navigate at times if you are unfamiliar.
  • Not exactly user friendly.
  • Sometimes locations of assignments are not clear, very obscure.
  • Not a very appealing layout.
  • I can say it has allowed me to stay in touch with teachers and so can the 17,000 other institutions who currently use Blackboard.
Google Classroom has the same objective, and that is to connect students to their teachers along with the organization. Google Classroom is organized easy to read and customizable by the teacher. Very user friendly. I can say that Blackboard is a much better platform to take tests but that's all that I have.
Itʻs a good platform for certain things such as tests. Blackboard may not be the most user friendly but there is always room for improvement in any website, business, etc. When used with other platforms such as Google Classroom, Blackboard can be more effective, but when used by itself I feel it is not as impactful from a student perspective.

No

Did Blackboard Learn live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Blackboard Learn go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Blackboard Learn again?

It is definitely something to use during a time of separation and "social distancing" but mainly because there are not that many options to begin with.
