Proof Blackboard Hates You

So Blackboard’s big time now (80% of the LMS market) and has bought out its rivals or sued them. Let’s ignore the fact that their product really is focused on administration rather than learning.

They made $4.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2007. So they’re not a one man shop barely getting by.

This is their idea of a search page for online documentation. Really. You’re not confused. Their search function is a really, really, really bad index. Really.

Blackboard is Evil

This was the final straw for me. I have declared a blood feud with Blackboard. One of us is going down.

    I join you in this blood feud, and let me tell you how glad I am to be fighting along side you, as opposed to the other way round 🙂
