Still More Blackboard Badness

Well, try and do any batch-type action in Blackboard, and I promise that you will go through a lot of extra steps. For example, I had to inactivate some students from one of my Blackboard course gradebooks. This involved going to control panel, list students, check their properties, and then make the appropriate change to "not available." This had to be done student by student, with a lot of screens, submits, confirms. I could not just go down a single list of students and change the properties and submit it all. These folks no nothing about productive use of an instructor's time.

Let me continue to count the ways that I do not like Blackboard. Number 25, seems like someone was somehow putting mysterious columns on the gradebook. And what was more bizarre, was that when I, as a faculty member, looked at the gradebook, I did not see these column entries, but somehow they were visible to students! Go figure!

I posted this again just for the sake of it.
