Blackboard=The Devil? Discuss . . . 

My second Siemen’s article was on Learning Management Systems (LMS) and why they, well, sorta suck. Their original purpose was to be forums for learning, but, as we all know with Blackboard, they have some major drawbacks. I’ve never seen a professor make full use of BB and I know more than a few who just plain refuse to use it. I feel, like Siemen’s, that this is because of the way the program is set up. If LMS programs were more like what we are doing now with the blog and whatnot, I think it would be MUCH more user, learner and teacher friendly.
