I'm forced to use Angel, who also sucks. It's infamous for having legendary breakdowns during important times. It was down pretty much all of finals week, and professors had posted exams and entire semesters worth of lecture notes on there...everyone went ape****. The Angel people didn't anticipate such high amounts of traffic..during finals week. It's also a running joke that they are trying to make Angel more and more inconvenient to use. They've literally buried important **** in the most obscure places, and made the gradebook into some buggy mess that teachers need a CS degree to enter grades into.

Blackboard is pretty good. I find it useful, but has room for improvement. Most problems you see with Blackboard are user error.

I used to like it buy I find that half of my professors have no ****ing idea how to use it. I had one online class where the professor never updated the front page where he posted all the due dates and I missed a test because he changed the date and I didn't get his email.

My school doesn't use blackboard, angel, moodle.

Well maybe, whatever we use is called desire2learn.

I hate when teachers don't use it. Makes group projects easier with the discussion boards and pager, because no one ever checks their emails. I have also had entire classes run through it no problems.

Some of my professors like to use the excuse of:

"You should keep track of your own grades."

These are also the same professors who keep their grades in a grade book manually.

We use Moodle at my school.

At first I hated it because it seemed like a way for teachers to get lazy and just post a bunch of crap for us to look at on our own, but I've come to realize that I'd be at a serious disadvantage without it.

Homework assignments and solutions go up on Moodle and are easy to access from anywhere, as opposed to printing out 50 pages and carrying them with you everywhere. If you ever lose something you printed out, need to check information about the course, etc you can always find what you need on Moodle (assuming the teacher puts it all up).

I don NOT, however, like handing in things through Moodle. We don't use it for that or for grades, really just for reference material.
