A break from your regularly scheduled programming
Blackboard is SO SLOW. It's crashing. When it's not crashing, it takes like 30 seconds to load each student's submission page - an eternity when you have a lot of student and a lot of assignments (that's how we do right now, so don't worry about the pedagogy). Students e-mailing when they can't submit assignments because the site's down - don't worry, ought implies can. Your paper's not late!
Any worthwhile free blackboard replacements out there?
