Home schooling not effective with this app.

Hasn’t had an update in over a year so that just goes to show how little they care about this app. I’m home schooling my child and this is the application they chose to run classes off of, but even on iPad Pro, I can’t get it to show me what the teacher has on her screen and no camera function. No tools function that lets you interact with the screen like on a computer. Honestly wish for this to be taken care of so that my child can have a productive learning experience

This really gets no stars but i can’t submit without a star. This app is clunky, doesn’t work well on apple or with their iOS web apps. I cannot see my professor while he is presenting when my classmates can. It doesn’t work with my bluetooth headset.

The settings in “settings” and within the app are useless and there is no online support from the app to get help. I have attended two classes with collaborate and neither worked as they should have. I was never able to really see the professor or what he was trying to show.

I rarely leave reviews, when I do, I try to make them positive, but this is the worst app I have downloaded.

It’s a good but there are better and easier things to use

So this app is good but there are better and easier this to teach on. If you are trying to teach students 5th and up use discord it’s easier to use and teach to kids and they most likely have it before school started that year. It’s hard to hack because of its anti-cheat. Because of covid kids can’t talk to each other but discord has chat rooms so they can talk. It also has announcements that they can’t change or edit use. In conclusion use discord instead of blackboard collaborate
