A learning management system is an educational resource employed in higher education to organize, document, track, report, and deliver courses. Selecting the appropriate learning management system is a critical decision for a university. This study utilizes the voice of the student to analyze usability from the students’ perspective. The goal of this project was to gather and analyze user preferences in order to select an appropriate learning management system. Data was collected through a survey to gain understanding of student’s experience with two commonly used learning management systems. The student survey evaluated the following criteria: finding course documents, finding grades, having accurate and updated grades, ease of navigation, intuitiveness, and communicating with professors. Data was also compiled from a survey given by on-campus IT personnel in order to provide internal information. In addition, a usability study conducted to gain further qualitative data for usability analysis. The information was combined to provide an overall ranking of the learning management systems.
