The objective of this study is to engage in a practical

analysis that will investigate the effects of using Blackboard Learn as

a learning platform for higher education students in Lesotho using

Botho University as a case study. A mixed method approach was

adopted for the study. Data was collected using in-depth interviews

and a questionnaire from 132 participants randomly selected for the

quantitative aspect and 30 participants purposively selected for the

qualitative aspect, from a sample size of 162 in three faculties.

Content analysis was used to evaluate the data from interviews. The

results have shown a positive impact of Blackboard on students’

performance. The findings reveal that Integrative and Dynamic

Blackboard are more suitable for enhancing students’ academic

performance at all levels. The results of the study can be used to
