Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution allows me to connect and collaborate with my classes."

More Blackboard Collaborate Pros →

"This solution is very reliable. It is easy to switch between audio and microphone when using headphones.""We were able to build our own customer portal and integrate into GoToWebinar with a seamless interface."

More GoToWebinar Pros →

Cons
"If there were maybe more tutorials outside of what I'm aware the university is suggesting, I would take more tutorials on effective ways to deliver content. I come from the industry and content was always needed when people that were observing were smart and involved and decision-makers instead of so passively just trying to pass the course. In my imagination, the tutorials would be a tool where the learners themselves can have much more hands-on learning during a Collaborate session."

More Blackboard Collaborate Cons →

"The platform feels old and a little rusty, more could be invested into the look and feel of it.""The chat window and using polls is easier in Zoom than compared to GoToWebinar. Make it simpler and easier to publish polls on the fly would improve the solution."
