Blackboard Mobile App Launched

Kedleston Road campus 504x257 Blackboard Mobile App Launched

Date posted: 18 February 2013

LEI's Technology Enhanced Learning Team, together with colleagues in ITS, has been working to test and launch Blackboard's own mobile app.

On February 4 the app went live to download and use. It has been designed for mobile phones and tablet devices such as Android, Apple and Blackberry.

The app allows you to log into your institutions' virtual learning environment, using your own log-in details to access the University's Course Resources, providing quick access to:

  • communication of course updates
  • access programs and module information
  • Blackboard blogs and journals.

With an internet connection the app is a user-friendly way of accessing content for both students and lectures, with the ability to view a range of formats via supported browsers or additional applications.

This investment in learning resources will allow students to receive announcements, participate in discussions and review content whilst on the move, which has the potential to enhance the student experience and their achievements.

Download the app for free by searching for 'Blackboard Mobile Learn' on devices' app stores via:

  • Android (Search Google Play)
  • iPhone/iPod/iPad (Search the App Store)
  • Blackberry (Search Blackberry App World).
