    Both my undergraduate (in the UAE) and graduate (in the USA) universities rely on Blackboard. I have used this platform for more than 5 years now and I think it's the best educational tool out there for schools and universities. It is very easy to navigate and you cannot go wrong with Blackboard. With Blackboard, you can easily carry out collaborative work with fellow classmates (though it is seldom used, thanks to Google Drive), create new tasks and manage them effortlessly, all your grades and notes are in one place etc. Organization of notes and assignments can be done efficiently on Blackboard. The different tabs help segregate the sections which makes it easy to navigate. I have heard of its competitor, Moodle, but never really had the chance to use it since both my universities used/use Blackboard and I am quite comfortable using it. The only negative aspect that I have noted is that sometimes professors tend to avoid using Blackboard altogether and find it easier to email the notes/assignments to students. I can only think about a training CD as the solution to this problem or making the user interface easier at the professors’ end. As a student, I personally find it very easy to use. It is also possible to integrate third party software as well. For example, Digication. The Blackboard Suite also includes Blackboard Collaborate which offers video conferencing capabilities.

    Pros : - Best platform for organization of notes and assignments - Very good for collaborative work - Breakdown of grades using the weighted average method can be done so you can keep track of your grades along the way (no surprises!) - User-friendly interface - Mass messaging is easy - Easy to insert links

    Cons : - The interface is not at all exciting and could do with a spruce up - Minimum training is required since not all professors are excited to use Blackboard - Pricey from management’s point of view

    I use Camtasia for demo videos, explanatory videos and also for client support. With so many projects being computer-based these days, the ability to actually show what's happening on your screen is so important. Having done computer support over the phone many times, it's often impossible to accurately describe what needs to be done in a way that newbies can understand... but anyone can follow a visual example. When offering support for my web apps, my clients are blown away when they get a personalized video with me reviewing their issue, and they can see how I solve it or hear/see the explanation. I use it almost daily.

    Pros :

    • Easy of use.
    • Adding media to the timeline is easy.
    • You can add animations, call-outs, text, transitions... all in a very easy to use manner.
    • Upload integration with YouTube/Vimeo makes publishing super easy. Easy to use green screen, just use the "Remove a color" option in video properties.
    • Decent audio noise cleanup and volume levelling for quiet parts.
    • Built-in library of templates is awesome... it has both built in themes, animations and rights-free audio that can be safely used on YouTube.
    • The ability to record both screen and webcam simultaneously is great.
    • Using green screen, you can overlay your talking head in the bottom corner explaining just like live instruction.

    Cons :

    • Lacks layering of chroma keying for green screen (you can only pick 1 color and then adjust variance).
    • Although there are adjustments for the color removal, without the ability to add color removal in layers for different shades... you really need to get the lighting done very well.
    • Also, older versions did not support the proprietary file format MTS (on some older Canon camcorders), but more recent versions do.
    • Sometimes opening projects made in older versions does not correctly "upgrade" the project to the new format, leaving the old project unusable.

    Blackboard Use Cases and Deployment ScopeBlackboard is the enterprise course management solution at Grand Valley State University (GVSU).  All faculty, staff, and students have accounts on the system and every course each semester has a Blackboard course site available for faculty to use in their teaching.  In addition, organization sites are used by a wide array of departments and student groups. In addition to traditional face to face courses, the Blackboard learning environment is used by GVSU's online and hybrid classes as the virtual classroom, enabling faculty to deliver engaging content and media while providing active learning-based assignments and assessments which include student feedback.  Blackboard powers a collaborative and high-touch campus community with communication tools that span the range of asynchronous (announcements, email, discussion boards, etc.) to synchronous tools that include Blackboard Enterprise Instant Messaging and real-time live capabilities with Blackboard Collaborate. By leveraging the system to provide role-based information through personalized information with the Blackboard Community system portal, the university can fine tune messaging and help to communicate through the clutter.  In addition, the Enterprise Survey tool within the Blackboard system helps to deliver surveys and serves as an effective way to learn the pulse of the faculty, staff, and students. Blackboard powers the networked learning environment at GVSU.

    What do you like best?Super easy to record a video / demo, and then edit. Solution includes really useful video and audio effects like cropping or zooming if your recording area changes during recording. I use this software to record any/all webinars that we host, as well as to record demos of our product features. We then publish to services like Wistia which allows us to track usage of those videos on our website. What do you dislike?There are some limitations on file types that you can edit or export to. But rarely is that an issue for me

    They offer an integration with Joomla but unfortunatly that does not work for users on mobile devices. Since everyone uses that lately the integration is pretty much worthless. The platform itself is pretty good tough.
