Blackboard SUCKS!

This Blackboard thing sucks huge big monkey balls!!
Not only do i find it racist & offensive, it's NEW TO ME!
What cheek!
Introducing new things when i was used to the old things! Fcuk sake!

In my day we had online classes & they did us just fine!
I don't like these new fangled computerwebthingies!

Bring back on line classes!!!!!!!




I think i sent a message to the registrar askin to host a blackboard course earlier. Oops!

I'll drink to that too. It's a pile of crap as a system as well, I can't believe they paid so much for it. The software for Online Classes was free!

UCD continues to astound and amaze with its usual high standard of competence and efficiency.

I for one applaud the senseless change to Blackboard, as it was, well, shucks, just too frickin' USEFUL and user-friendly before. Congratulations to the college authorities for having the foresight and malicious intent neccessary to well and truly f**k up the system.

Kudos UCD. Kudos.

I wonder if they'll actually give me my blackboard course since i asked for it so nicely & incompetently?
It'd be the coolest course in the whole college!

OnlineClasses was the e-learning system used before Blackboard.

No it was a free and miles-better version, which computing services were too incompetent to use.

nope. the software is free for anybody (ie computing services) to use. blackboard costs a lot initially and the college have to renew their licence to run it each year - hence the rip off.
