While I have been using and maintaining a Moodle system for several years in my building, I am currently investigating switching to a Blackboard system for several reasons including: reducing our bandwidth use to make space for other initiatives, ease of maintenance, ease of teacher use, etc.

Anyone out there using Blackboard in their schools? How well has it integrated with your student management systems? How do teachers like/dislike/utilize the system? Besides cost, any reason I should or should not continue investigating a Blackboard system?

Nitin, it has a great feature set, but has higher server requirements than Moodle. If I remember correctly, it uses a lot of Java and requires TomCat or a similar Java layer on top of Apache web server.

The college my wife works at in Western Massachusetts chose it for its course management system after a process similar to the one you describe.
