Previously there were separate mobile apps for students and instructors. These have been combined into a single Blackboard app, which is available to download for iOS and Android.
If you are an Instructor on a course, you can view course content, regardless of whether it is available to students, and you can carry out a limited range of tasks directly within the mobile app – for example you can post an announcement.
See https://help.blackboard.com/Blackboard_App/Instructors for more information on using the Blackboard app.
How do I get the app?
The app is available for Android, Apple and Windows smartphones and tablets.
To download and log in to the app:
- Search for “Blackboard” in your device’s App Store:
- Android Play Store
- Apple App Store
- Windows App Store
- Click to install the app.
- When opening the app for the first time, tap on Search for your School, type in ‘Reading’ and select University of Reading from the results.
- Click on the Web Login button.
You will then be taken to the University’s Microsoft sign in page inside the app.
