Cons
"The system can overload when too many try logging in.""If there were maybe more tutorials outside of what I'm aware the university is suggesting, I would take more tutorials on effective ways to deliver content. I come from the industry and content was always needed when people that were observing were smart and involved and decision-makers instead of so passively just trying to pass the course. In my imagination, the tutorials would be a tool where the learners themselves can have much more hands-on learning during a Collaborate session."

More Blackboard Collaborate Cons »

"In the future, I would like to see remote access control for other computers.""Having easier access to recorded meetings, being able to download them fast, and playing them back would be helpful.""When a lot of people join a meeting it is not possible to shrink the pictures and show them on a single screen.""When sharing a screen, it's only dedicated to one particular window, not multiple windows""I would like to be able to have multiple users open and collaborate on a document at the same time.""Technical support is in need of improvement.""I would like to see support for transferring files.""Zoom is an immature product that is not yet stable."
