Blackboard Rant

I’ve taken hours of training in Blackboard. According to the level of instruction I’ve had, I am an “expert.” I like software, and am accustomed to learning new interfaces.

Yet: I cannot understand Blackboard-ese, I cannot make it do two-thirds of what its documentation promises me it can do, and when I can, I hate how it’s done.

  1. At Pepperdine, we’re considering a wholesale switch to Sakai. I’m one of the profs piloting it this fall. It’s pretty robust, but I don’t know if your mileage would be better.

  2. Amen! I’m no “expert,” but the Blackboard folks seem to think that 5 mouse clicks are always better than one.
