Blackboard beats the competition - hands down. I've used this software for over 3 years as a student as well as teaching assistant.
They constantly improve the software. It's very fluid. Grading is a breeze.
The interface is decently easy to use but you can miss some updates if you don't check it very often
.Likewise, it keeps my students in touch with me - and each other.
There are so many options for creating assignments, allowing students to view content, or interact with each other.
I love using Blackboard Learn.
The menus are clean and simple
Easy to navigate the menus, different screens and options
Saves time and energy than going to an actual classroom
love the ability to reach all of students or any subgroup in multiple ways.
For example, personalized announcement, group emails, meeting and grading in realtime, scheduling office hours, and getting notifications are just a few of the native services, and each can be customized.
I believe that blackboard is a good system, but it could use some improvement.
It is only as good as the instructor who sets it up.
blackboard is easy to use, but if the instructor is not computer savvy (or lazy) then you can have a difficult time using the software.
Maybe blackboard is harder to set up as an instructor than it is to use as a student
