**** Blackboard

This is such a piece of **** tool. I'm sure most of you have had to deal with it. My stupid professor decided to have us take the final through Blackboard and of course I get locked out of it and have to wait for her to reopen it for me.

**** Blackboard.

Sympathize with me.

it's usually the bearer of bad news, so i'm not a fan. not overly impressed with it overall, though.

It seems like a good idea, but it never ****ing works properly. Then when it does break, the professors insist it's fine.

My CC switched from Blackboard to Angel. Angel is soooo much better than Blackboard.

yup. I love teachers who actually post up grades, powerpoints, test reviews, etc on there. I have one teacher who uses blackboard, one uses webct, one uses his website, and the other uses her website with our grades on some funky system with randomly generated # usernames and passwords. It's a PAIN IN THE ***.

I transferred to a school that doesn't use blackboard, the professors just post stuff to their public folders in our outlook. I miss blackboard, so much better...

Most professors I've encountered at Purdue use a single course page per class on their department's site. Some use blackboard but it's only for grade keeping. Our physics department created their own database that students can access to see their grades. Something tells me they did that because of blackboard.





Oh yeah, it sucks.

my english class uses vista blackboard, but pretty much to only post grades. Probably a good thing for as many times as it goes down in a week
