Interface I Enjoy: Wikipedia

Wikipedia is a great example of how to organize an enormous amount of data. Search is efficient with ambiguity handled very well, giving users all possible meanings grouped by category.
The ability to click on anything to be taken to the corresponding article is a very useful (and time-consuming) option, and pages are organized well in general, with most having useful info bars.

Interface I Dislike: Testudo

Testudo is essentially a glorified folder browser with a steeper than necessary learning curve that requires experimentation from the user to find what they are looking for.
Course searching and registering are not as easy as they could be, and requiring students to open multiple taps to browse classes and register at the same time is confusing.
