2021: Suggest Improvements to Collaborate and Learn Mobile (aka the Mobile VLE)

Do you have a suggestion for an improvement to the Collaborate Ultra platform or the Blackboard Learn mobile experience (either via the apps or mobile web browser)?

If so, we’d love to hear from you. 

Just like last year (2020 blog post – “Have Your Say!”), we have again created two surveys to allow our user community to suggest new features/enhancements, and to vote on suggestions already made by others in the community. If you have ten minutes, please complete the relevant survey(s) if you have thoughts to share:

These forms will close on April 20th 2021 (23:59 BST).

Whilst these forms are primarily designed for staff use, students are also welcome to complete them if they wish.

These surveys are anonymous. They’re comprised of likert scales, where you can vote 0-5 on each suggested feature/change (0 = N/A, 5 = Essential). There’s a space at the end of each section of the form where you can suggest further features/changes that haven’t already been mentioned.

We feel that it is important that we give feedback to Blackboard about the products that they make: suggesting fixes, tweaks and changes. The results of these surveys will greatly help us with this when we next meet with related Blackboard Product Managers, towards the end of April 2021.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the surveys.

Who and what is “MoCo”?

In the description of each form you’ll see references to “MoCo”. “MoCo” is short for “Mobile and Collaborate” and it’s the nickname of the “Blackboard Mobile and Collaborate User Group”, which I co-lead with a colleague from UWE Bristol.

More information: What is a User Group?

As a user of either Collaborate or Blackboard Mobile (or both!) you’re very welcome to join MoCo and contribute further to our community. We meet online on the last Friday of every month to share best practices, tips and more. To join, register on the Blackboard Community Site and then head over and join the MoCo User Group.
