learning management systems
I've used 3 or 4 in my 11 years in college, and they've all SUCKED. Over the last decade, they seem to have undergone a smooth transition from having shitty basic functionality, to being full of bloat, and that's about it.
My university's current one has now been down, for reasons unknown, for almost 40 straight hours. And I teach 3 courses where we're forced to use it, though at least only on a limited basis - but it's still sending some of my students into a panic. Hope it turns out that what happened is a hack by some disgruntled student or something - at least that'd be sort of hilarious.
I can only imagine what it's like for those teaching online-only courses. It's probably the fucking apocalypse for them D:

Don't look at me like that"
