Informazioni su Blackboard Learn
Grazie a tecnologia e servizi innovativi, Blackboard for Business consente alle organizzazioni di trasformare l'apprendimento in un vantaggio strategico.
A few dollars more is well worth the money spent.
I'm paying for the courses because institutions are supposed to pay for the use of the platform. But it happens frequently that the platform is down.

Commenti: Nel complesso la mia esperienza è ottima e lo consiglierei ad un amico
Blackboard è un software molto utile per la didattica a distanza e rispetto agli altri ha più funzioni ed è più comodo per l’istruzione universitaria
Il software è molto utile e fin’ora non ho riscontrato problemi/ svantaggi nell’utilizzo del software. L’interfaccia è molto chiara e facile e il software presenta tutte le funzioni che servono per l’utilizzo
Buon prodotto per la gestione della didattica.
Facile da utilizzare, ottima esperienza di utilizzo.
In caso di utilizzo da parte di troppi utenti, potrebbe richiedere più tempo per il login.
Buon prodotto per uso didattico.
Le caratteristiche migliori sono la dashboard intuitiva e la modalità di apprendimento mista.
Presenta sporadicamente dei bug temporanei.
Easy and flexible learning management system.
Commenti: Students are satisfied with it.
It has very strong and fast customer support service.
It's bit costly and there are no free version.
After the pandemic, Blackboard Learn became a staple for online education
I like that it organizes courses in a very neat way, the website is easy to navigate and looks great visually. The calendar is very helpful.
It's not very easy to use for teachers. They often have a hard time understanding all of the features Blackboard provides.
A helpful LMS from the student perspective.
Commenti: I think that overall it was functional and did the job. I think there is room for improvement, but it functions in the way you'd expect from an LMS.
I liked that you could set it to send reminders about when upcoming assignments were due. It was very helpful from that perspective.
I thought the user interface was clunky and needed work. It was sometimes hard to navigate and there would often be times where students would have to ask how to do something in the platform.
Blackboard Learn for Aiken Technical College's Embedded Librarian Program
Commenti: I post announcements about our Library's online resources and also monitor a Discussion Board thread called "Ask a Librarian." I get plenty of questions in the Discussion Board and also in response to the announcements, especially closer to assignment due dates.
I can post a variety of media in the Announcements section and in the Content Areas. The more options I can give students to access the information they need, the better.
There may be a way to do this and I haven't figured out how yet, but I would like to be able to transfer a whole content area from one course to another instead of starting from scratch each time.
A Comprehensive and Versatile Learning Management System
Commenti: Blackboard Learn offers many benefits but it's essential to consider its cons. The complexity, reliability, unintuitive features, and cost can be significant factors to consider when deciding whether to use Blackboard Learn for online learning.
Blackboard Learn allows instructors to create engaging and interactive course materials, such as videos, quizzes, and discussion forums, which can promote collaboration and critical thinking among students. Additionally, the platform's compatibility with various devices means that students can access course materials from anywhere, at any time. Finally, Blackboard Learn's ability to integrate with other educational technologies and tools, such as plagiarism checkers and online libraries, makes it a versatile and valuable tool for online education.
While Blackboard Learn offers a range of features, some of them are not as intuitive as they could be. For example, the grading system can be difficult to navigate, and the discussion forums can be overwhelming and challenging to manage effectively.
Better Learning Tool Out There
Commenti: Overall my experience with Blackboard was not bad but since using other software I do prefer the others to Blackboard Learn.
Hosting courses on Blackboard is better than having another software. Helps with managing your class and multiple users can work together to add work to it. Integration with zoom is great and necessary. Eases the maintenance that comes with large classes for teacher assistants and professors.
So many features could be improved. We now use Canvas and prefer that to Blackboard Learn. Need more integration and more improvements on the mobile app.
Great LMS for school or uni
Blackboard is reliable and easy to use LMS, requiring little to no direction or training for new users. Communication and notifications are great, found all in one place for easy access and viewing. Gradebook is another fantastic feature. All the information about your assessments can be found in one place, including submission dates, marking criteria and overall grades. Submission process is great, allowing users to thoroughly review their documents and their similarity report before submission.
UI could be updated to be more user-friendly, e.g., minimise clicks, add more shortcuts for site navigation. Features to allow for collaboration in group projects/tasks would be useful as many users prefer external software for collaboration, communication between students and instructors and productivity. However, it is perfectly adequate for users familiar with the LMS.
Great for Professors and Students
It is easy to navigate blackboard, view assignments, grades, etc. At my college, my professors post everything on this site, including grades, the syllabus, assignments, and contact information. The only time it's hard to navigate is when a professor doesn't organize the class well, and that is not on Blackboards end.
The emailing feature within blackboard can be a bit finicky at times, so I tend to find the professors email and send an email directly to them.
Commenti: Useful as a student to have assessments and feedback from multiple courses in one place
Easy to use and have multiple modules from different courses all accessible in one place which helps me stay organised
Could be better if the interface was more intuitive or there were more demonstrations on how to use it as a student
Great Platform but depends on ADMIN/Teacher Set up
-great variety of features-can be used as a resource bank or for assessments-can be used to host video conferencing
-if the admin/teacher did not set it up properly, the user interface can be convoluted and difficult to navigate-folder system/indexing can be overwhelming
Blackboard - Really clunky!
Commenti: At our institution Bb Learn instructions sometimes don't match the local implementation.
What I like most about the software is what is is *supposed* to do: serve as a total course management system.
Everything about Blackboard is clunky — at least as it is set up in our university. Operations that should be drag and drop require multiple clicks. Nearly every function in Blackboard is present in other generic software and works more efficiently. In addition, Blackboard (as set up in our school) forces templates onto teachers, Redoing the templates into usable form takes lots of clicks. Here are two examples of the most egregious design errors. 1. The Bb gradebook. It vaguely resembles like Excel or Google sheets in how functions. But unlike spreadsheets where one can easily duplicate columns and reassign formulas, the Gradebook requires separate multiple-menu-click operations for every column creation, every grade entry and every grade change. We find little flexibility in creating grading formulas, compared to off-the-shelf spreadsheet programs. And the import-export functions of Bb gradesheets to generic spreadsheets is so clunky that it is unusable. 2. Course duplication. Bb allows the teacher to duplicate a course. Except it doesn't really work. If you try and duplicate the course you taught in the year 2020 for use in 2021, you find that Blackboard will duplicate the general template for all university courses without importing all of the eaacher's innovations.
BB Learn-the old workhouse
Commenti: I will continue to use BB Learn or soon we will be using Ultra, for as long as I have to for my job. If my job were to ask me should we keep BB or switch to another LMS - I would say SWITCH! One of the absolute worst features within BB is the Voice thread area. I used to use it and had to teach others how to use it. They (BB) decided to "improve it" a couple years ago and now it is so difficult to use that I tried to create user guides and could not get it to work and it was so complicated now, I have given up on it entirely and do not recommend that area at all for anyone to use.
I like the powerful features and security of the program
BB is the most frustrating program I have ever used. It was one of the 1st LMS programs-I have heard. Its design is clunky and seems to be created by someone with little UXUI experience, I mean UXUI was a field that was known only by the people in the top of their field 20+ years ago so that would make sense! The lack of logical design for buttons and search areas is aggravating. The lack of them going back and changing things for the better and getting a visual designer and UXUI person involved NOW to fix the program-is again aggravating. An example to add a user, you click on a menu item-it goes to a window on the right and there is a search field there which one is supposed to ignore and know somehow to click on a button that does not look like a button called "Find Users To Enroll". WHY, is the search field even showing? Do you know how many times if I get away form using BB for a few weeks or months I end up typing in that filed instead of a button that does not look like a button? Explaining to faculty to NOT type in the field is a constant, because your intuition thinks the design makes sense-it does not.
True and Tried (but also Tired)
Commenti: Please see above :). I've used BB since I was in college (back in the aughts) and regret that my future students at CSUSB will not have access to it moving forward. Even still, I likely won't miss the gradebook, though Canvas' leaves much to desire as well...
I know it extremely well, find it to be easy to operate, think its features are strong and easily accessible, and have had very few incidents with students being totally baffled by it. We switched to Canvas this year, and I rue the day the decision was made.
The GUI for our version of Blackboard was extremely dated (we did not use Ultra, which frankly seems like a Canvas clone). I would offer the following analogy... Blackboard : Canvas :: PowerPoint : Keynote (... and I'm a PC user). It's boxy, somewhat drab, and looks a bit 'late Geocities // Fark.com'-era. EVEN STILL: I don't mind it - I'd rather have functionality than aesthetics, which is the tradeoff made with Canvas. DEADLY SERIOUS NOTE HERE: The BB Gradebook has always been, continues to be, and seemingly will forever remain an enormous hassle. It is slow, tedious to adjust, difficult to manage, and user unfriendly.
Blackboard works well enough, still trying to catch up.
Commenti: Blackboard works well enough for what we need to use it for. There are other LMS that work equally as well, if not better, so there is healthy competition to push Blackboard to improve.
Blackboard is a relatively stable platform with few major bugs that restrict users from completing tasks. It has a long history and many users are familiar with the LMS.
Some of the tools don't always work as smoothly as you'd like. They are making major improvements but there are still issues that come up to make it a cohesive experience and tools not feel as disjointed.
Blackboard LMS for Business Review
Commenti: My overall experience with Blackboard LMS Business is always amazing! It has helped and improved my grade so much because it lets me know ahead of time when assignments are due, which has helped be more organized as well. I love this software so much and I suggest everyone to use this!
A feature that I love the most about this software is it allows teachers to upload assignments online to eliminate the use of paper. This software is such an easy to use software and really simple to change any settings for the liking of your choice. What I also love about this is that it is a good platform to take tests and quizzes, which is super amazing because it is not confusing at all. I absolutely love this and it has helped be more organized!
A feature that I would like to see in the future is the mobile app, it could use a little improvement and it is a bit slow, but the desktop version is amazing so it does not really bother me because I usually check and do everything through my desktop. I still absolutely love this software.
Abomination is an Understatement
Commenti: I had the opportunity to go to school online, or check assignments on a web-based platform. I liked that. But other than that, I cannot say a single good thing about it.
It is web-based. Some modules can be dragged and dropped. It has a lot of useless features I don't ever need or use, while missing ones that I do need.
Let's be real. Blackboard never heard of "less is more." They could learn a lesson from likes of Uber. Here's what students need: 1. Educational content 2. Tasks with Due Dates and eventually grades 3. Chat (Group and Private) 4. Notifications If a millennial designed Blackboard, the entire application could fit into a 3 page app, simple enough for a retard. They went out of their way to make it complicated, so it would seem better on paper. They've put so many bells and whistles that it is an absolute nightmare for both students and professors alike. Confuses everyone and is a bottleneck in our educational system we should be doing without.
Fine product, needs updating
Commenti: Blackboard Learn helps students stay organized during the semester or course they are taking by having all the documents, videos, etc. that the teacher would like to share with them all in one place. But, Blackboard Learn is becoming very outdated and could use some serious UI updates, especially when compared to Canvas.
It's nice to have all the assignments, documents, and grades in one place. This helps to avoid professors handing out tons of papers or sending emails all the time. The mobile app sends push notifications about grades or upcoming assignment deadlines which is nice.
I have noticed some glitches using Blackboard (didn't get notifications, etc). The UI on the computer is outdated and counterintuitive in some ways for both students and instructors. The online service is completely different from the app version which can also be a problem. The online UI needs to be updated to look more like the app.
Great and Powerful LMS - Blackboard.
The way we can review the documents; The better way to report plans localized to the group. I can gauge what matters more simple and directely. I like all the information, the trend is in one space, graphed automatically and an easy way of collaboration and track deliverables.
We don't have any major issues using Blackboard. It is a really good service for us!
Great LMS for University
Commenti: It is very customizable to your individual class/course. I would highly recommend it.
I have used this as a user and as an administrator and it is a great LMS. I allows for easy communication sent to all students/teachers in a course.
There is limited activity tracking for students and visuals could be improved.
New Bb Rollout
Commenti: My institution just rolled out the updated Blackboard platform. I CANNOT UNDERSTATE HOW DISAPPOINTING IT IS! It is harder to use and Bb has removed many of the options for customizing the look and feel of course environments. The MOST ANNOYING change is the locked "institution" bar on the left side of the screen. It is taking up precious screen space... it is not movable. AND the x "close course" box on the top left is too easy to click on... I have already had the problem of having a course close a number of times when I was working on it because I scrolled over that box. This IS REALLY BAD. Stupid design. A move backwards.
Ability to share lecture recordings and instructional material.
The changes are in the wrong direction. Only 1 discussion folder. Moving from ability for instructors to customise the look and feel of a course to more standardization.
Undergraduate Learning with Blackboard Learn
Commenti: My overall experience with Blackboard Learn was optimal as a student in college.
I found this advantageous when I was in college as an undergraduate. It was great to track my course work and online assignments through this LMS. For its time it was adequate with the UI layout but to modern look and feel of websites and web application software in 2020 it would be outdated unless they revamped the display of everything.
It was just a bit clunky at times and occasionally a pain in the @$$ but it still got the job done. It might have been that my student user rights weren't fully configured and there was a lack of training from the university for students to use the tool and not on the fault of Blackboard Learn.
Commenti: I have a good platform for online and in-person lessons.
Simple in use, easy to explore. It didn't take too much time to get used to this product
Not enough functionality - no options for embedded videos, you can not insert links or audio files in the body of the learning module, only below.
