Without the constraints of time and place, e-learning can offer a strong learning environment. The notion of e-learning has taken on a new sense with the advent and popularization of mobile devices and ubiquitous computing, enabling students to have access to several diverse opportunities for communicating with e-learning programs. Around the same time, it has prompted the course’s planners to select the most suitable technology from among the various innovations required for the storing and dissemination of information representation. As a Learning Management System (LMS), the Blackboard system now has a recognized role in the knowledge management of the education system. Blackboard offers effective and easy-to-use instructional teaching, correspondence, and assessment systems. Blackboard Ally works to create more open content for interactive classes and helps institutions create a more balanced experience of teaching and learning. Blackboard Ally is a unique application that easily blends with the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and runs directly within the workflows currently used by administrators, instructors, and students. This analysis is intended to explore the successful utilization and assessment of Blackboard Ally among academics in the Jazan University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The key purpose of this study is to examine how administrators, faculty members, and students use Ally for Blackboard LMS’s functionality across online classes to analyze both the learning process and the success of the individual. A critical review of the literature, utilization, and examination of Blackboard Ally shows a good range of scholarly opinions, research, hypotheses, models, and experiences about the simulated learning environment. According to our knowledge and literature review, this is the first research article to evaluate the implementation and utilization of the Ally tool by Blackboard LMS.
