Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Course Hero reviews

I can upload ten documents of my own to gain access to the work of other students and professors. There is a large database that you can use to reference work

Blackboard reviews

"Easier than unjamming the photocopier!" What do you like best about Blackboard Learn? Two things -- First, it enables a paper-free classroom. I don't have to make photocopies, and I don't have stacks of physical papers to grade. Second, it disconnects due dates/times from class sessions. I can have them do work before we meet and adjust what we do in class based on the results. Review collected by and hosted on What do you dislike about Blackboard Learn? Students tend to find it challenging to navigate at first, so I end up spending a significant amount of time teaching them Blackboard. I'd love to see the mouse-over explanations of things that many websites have now. Review collected by and hosted on What problems is Blackboard Learn solving and how is that benefiting you? The Blackboard "My Grades" feature has virtually eliminated emails about grades after they are posted. We're able to take care of any questions before the end of the semester, and therefore, explaining why grades were what they were no longer cuts into my vacation time. Huge win!

Blackboard Learn Review I had great experience with Blackboard Learn and I will continue to use it in the future. I have not found any other education software out there that can do what Blackboard Learn does. Pros It is easy to use and has all of the feature I need like auto grade, the ability to create quiz and text on the fly and allow the student to get involved in the discussion. Cons There is nothing I do not like about the software. Reasons for choosing Blackboard Learn I chose Blackboard Learn over these alternative because it is a higher quality product with far better features than any other I have ever seen. Reasons for switching to Blackboard Learn Google classroom do not have the ability to auto grade and it does not have the ability to organized things in different pages like Blackboard

Blackboard Review I found the software easy to use and it was beneficial to providing higher education to those in the workplace and those who attend NU. Pros I prefer Blackboard Learn over other software that I have used in the past and recent events. The simplicity of the system ensures that it is easy to use for all generations, teacher and student, and all of those in between. Cons Right now, I do not think there is anything I would change. Reasons for choosing Blackboard Learn How easy Blackboard learn was to use compared to other softwares. Reasons for switching to Blackboard Learn Ability for users to understand the program.
