Blackboard Mobile app

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 for more information on using the Blackboard app.
