As a follow-up to my last post about Blackboard, I thought I would mention that I have spent 2 of the last 4 hours of class trying to get my students access to the course they are taking. With all that, it will take 24-48 hours for their accounts to be activated. This is a 4 week course. It will be 1/4 of the way over before they ever see Blackboard. I think I am going to remove the couple things I was going to have students do there and just forget it.
While I was talking to support people about this today, I was unable to access my own account. I could log in, and I could see my list of course, but I could not access them. It is ridiculous.
