This was actually a great topic to discuss about because they deal with a form of communication. Its amazing how blackboard and coarse management can handle thousands of kids at once. This most likely increased more students to attend school due to school being easily navigated and taught. More and more students save money on buying textbooks as some classes offer the course work uploaded into these new blackboard systems.Blackboard and other CMS systems have increased throughout the world. It makes teaching and communicating with a massive amount of students a lot easier. A down side can also be connection issues during a online quiz or uploading files. Other than that I believe it was one of the best inventions. Were actually using the system moodle. Almost every university has there own database which makes it safe and efficient. Do you think there will be something more advance than what we already have.
