Report: How Instructors Use the LMS Influences Student Interaction in Class -- Campus Technology

Report: How Instructors Use the LMS Influences Student Interaction in Class -- Campus Technology | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
A recent study by Blackboard examined how learning management system (LMS) use in courses influences student activity in the LMS as a kind of proxy for overall course design. More than half of courses (53 percent) were considered "supplemental," relying on the LMS as little more than a way to give students access to course materials, with a little bit of use of gradebook and announcement functionality. In that case the amount of time students spent interacting with the course was 15 hours on average with about 222 student interactions. On the opposite extreme were courses that spent the bulk of time delivering assessments through the LMS, among other activities. There, the average student class time spent in the LMS was nearly five times as long (70 hours), with an average of seven times more student interactions (1,596).

How I Learned to Stop Resenting Blackboard and Start Using BB Grader – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
I’ve never been a fan of Blackboard, the monolithic learning management system that’s the standard at so many schools. I’ve always found it slow, poorly designed, and very awkward to use. Recently, however, my attitude changed (slightly) when a colleague introduced me to BB Grader, a free iPad app for Blackboard designed to make the grading process in Blackboard mobile-friendly.
