TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21 | 11:05 AM | MARRIOTT CENTER
Failure to launch 4 OPINIONS
I don’t know about you, but I like to consider myself an average college student.
Well honestly, I’m a freshman — new to the school, staying in the dorms, I’ve got
my meal ticket and I now know how to work the vending machines. However there
is one thing that I haven’t quite understood nor had tolerance for: Blackboard. Why
does everyone think the school must revolve around Blackboard? Consider this: we
must check it 100 times a day to ensure we haven’t missed any assignments. With
all the new technology, teachers can decide to have a six-page paper due the next
day and post it on Blackboard.
From personal experience, it seems like half the times I have tried to log onto
Blackboard, the Web site fails. On the first day of school, I was trying to log on, only
to have my Web browser say “internet page cannot be displayed.” What do I do?
How do I know what my assignments are? What if the professor posts an announce-
ment or assignment? Wait, I can try the simplest thing, close out the browser and
try again. Only to get your hopes up again, and find the hopes and dreams of the
college freshman are smashed to bits and pieces ...“Web Page Cannot Be Displayed.”
And we resort to plan C, call the IT Center. You explain what your problem is:
Blackboard isn’t working. They put you on hold. You get too frustrated and hang up
the phone, or, if they answer, they tell you there is nothing they can do but transfer
you to someone else who will be less help.
In my own opinion, I have found Blackboard is not helping progression as stu-
dents. I get frustrated and stressed when I use it. With the advancement of technol-
ogy these days, no one stops to consider that a computer is incapable of explaining
and answering questions. Try to contact the teacher during their conference time,
but you happen to have class then. Try to explain the problem you’re having over
e-mail, but computers cannot speak to describe the problem. Try to set up a time to
meet with the professor and they don’t have the time to meet with you. Most profes-
sors will try to make time for you, but sometimes it’s too difficult to arrange.
I realize that I might be alienating some readers when I say this, but I feel the
Web site is poorly designed. What is the difference between course materials,
course documents and course tools? I find myself looking around the site in circles,
searching for homework assignments, just to find out they are actually on a dif-
ferent Web site. I believe it would be simpler to have one tab, with all the course
“stuff” in it. I also get very frustrated when the Web site has a place for you to
check your grades, but nothing is there. I want quick access to view my progress,
but that doesn’t seem attainable.
Why do professors feel the need to technologize everything they come across?
Aren’t they hoping for the “good old days,” complaining about cell phones and
texting, and how remotes for the TV are too challenging? Why do they suddenly feel
the need to make Blackboard their one technological advance? It is very frustrating
for students when we cannot access the information because of Internet failure or
I had an experience with a professor and Blackboard that officially turned me
off. I was struggling with finding an assignment, so I asked my math professor
where to find it. He spent 20 minutes explaining to me how to get and download the
assignment. I was completely confused. He gave up and told me to figure it out on
my own. If you ask me, there is something wrong with that statement.
I’m not saying that, in theory, Blackboard was a bad idea. I’m just saying if a
campus is forced to focus around a Web site, they probably should have made sure
it works first. We need to fix this quickly; chaos in cyberspace is not a good way for
a campus to run.
