What was the best part about using Blackboard?
Blackboard is a very unique and distinctive software in the category of education software. Teachers and students can keep in touch with the online program as it is cloud based. You are timely notified about your forthcoming courses. It also provides you a discussion board, where you can enhance your knowledge and skills by alterating about the courses with other students. This program keeps you updated about the assignments, exams, tests, projects and all types of activities happening in your class. Quizzes, grading system, polls, and forums can also be composed on this tool. Files can be uploaded and shared without a hitch.
What would you change about your experience with Blackboard?
Blackboard homepage can not be personalised and the interface is too simple. It would be more suitable if there was a feature to personalise the homepage according to your choice and desire. From a teacher's perspective, it's not a proficient and adequate tool. Numerous clicks are required to use any tool not making a good option to be used on slower connections. The software is not at all modern according to the present time. They doubtlessly need to upgrade it with new features to make it fit in the market. We usually have to face a lot of complications in playing the online lectures recorded by the professors.
To wrap up, I would say that it is very convenient to use and can be effortlessly learnt and used by both students and teachers. Features like the discussion board, composing tests, assignments, projects, polls, quizzes, etc. and keeping you updated about every approaching activity makes it a really constructive tool for all. This tool is also accessible on mobile phones and not let you skip anything going on in your class. I just hope that makers will soon add up the features of customization and fix up the concerns like complication in playing online lectures.
