Using Blackboard on Your Mobile Device
devices


If you have an iOS or Android mobile device, you can access your grades, handouts, assignments, and more using the Blackboard Mobile Learn application. This app is available on all carriers. It is not available on Blackberry or Web OS devices.

Blackboard has changed its distribution model to a personal licensing option. As a result, it is no longer free. As of Tuesday, September 18, users will be prompted to download the app from the App Store or Google Play. The cost is $1.99 for a one-year license OR a one-time fee of $5.99. (Note: the one-time fee assumes continued use of the same mobile platform.The license is not transferable from iOs to Android and vice-versa.)
