Blackboard Learn is a learning management system that comprises four modules: a learning system that provides online course delivery and management for institutions; a community and portal system for use in creating online campus communities; a content management system for centralized control over course content; and a system to record and analyze student assessment results.

This is a highly available environment that is monitored 24x7.
