Course navigation is one of Blackboard Learn's strongest features. Because the navigation is so flexible and intuitive, it is easy for students to find content and navigate around inside of courses. Faculty can customize this navigation to fit the needs of their courses, but the basic layout and structure remain consistent across the entire platform.

Overall, the program is extremely user-friendly and easy to use. It makes it way easier to communicate with your professor if there are any class updates or if you're having an issue with an assignment. It provides an all-in-one place to get any information for a class that you might have missed which makes it very convenient.

Blackboard's usability is adequate at best. The interface needs massive redesign to make functions easier to find and more intuitive to use. When I train new users, I skip teaching about certain features because I know that these features are cumbersome and confusing to use. Recently when I was researching how to accomplish a task, I couldn't even find information from the online help section on this task.

It is very usable for both faculty and students. The interface is pretty intuitive and most students can use it without a lot of additional training. Faculty do need some training to effectively use the interface, but they usually get it pretty quickly. We have had to create some additional programming to give faculty a way to delve deeper into the content.
