DIE HOCHMÜTIGE DOHLE UND DER PFAU

Einst lebte eine Dohle, voll von eitlem Stolz, die stahl sich Federn, die dem Pfau entfallen warn und putzte sich damit. Das eigne Dohlenvolk ver- achtend trat sie in der schönen Pfauen Reihn. Der Unver- schämten reißt man hier die Federn aus, jagt sie mit Schnäbeln. Und die Dohle, bös verbleit will wieder nun betrübt zu ihrem Volk zurück. Die aber stoßen sie von sich, mit herbem Schimpf. Und eine derer, die zuvor verachtet, sprach zu ihr “Hätt’ unsre Lebensart dir vormals conveniert, hätt’st du, was die Natur dir schenkte, akzeptiert, dann wär dir weder jene Schande widerfahrn noch müsstest du zum Unglück jetzt verstoßen sein.”

Summary

Blackboard / SafeAssign: We were finally able to test SafeAssign directly and not by using a system belonging to another school. However, we were only able to do this after writing an email to the CEO of the company! We repeatedly filled out the online form asking someone to contact us, but we received no answer. We even spent about an hour on the phone, calling numbers in the USA, UK, and Belgium, trying to reach someone in their call centers who could give us a name or number of someone to contact about access. When we found the web page encouraging us to write to the CEO if we were unhappy, we did. It took a week for someone to answer us, but then we were able to indeed test the system. There were many problems with the layout, the links, the labels, the error messages were at times unintelligable (“An unexpected error as occurred. For reference, the Error-ID is 266×800….”), the navigation was confusing. Over all of our tests cases, SafeAssign was in sixth place (tied with Compilatio) and would have been ranked with the partially useful systems, if the usability had not been so bad. Strangely enough, although it is a US system, it fared worse on the English-language tests than on the German ones.
