Bb Mobile Learn is no longer available or supported by Blackboard. Instead they have released two new apps, the Blackboard App and Blackboard Instructor.
The Blackboard app is designed to meet student’s unique needs with enhancements from the original Bb Mobile Learn app. Blackboard Instructor focuses on the workflows most important to instructors.
The Blackboard app provides students with a modern, accessible mobile teaching and learning experience that allows them to access and interact with Blackboard content anytime, anywhere.
If you already have the Bb Student app downloaded there are no additional instructions except to update your app to the newest release. You will see the name change to “Blackboard” and a new app tile. If you have never downloaded the Bb Student or Bb Mobile apps you will need to go to your app store and search “Blackboard”. NOTE: If you would like to download the Blackboard app on your iPad go to the App Store and search for Blackboard. Then toggle to iPhone only to download the app.
Blackboard Instructor App
Blackboard Instructor app is a brand new mobile and tablet app that gives instructors a simple and intuitive way to manage courses, interact with students, and view content with an emphasis placed on their immediate needs. For mobile grading functionality, you can use the Bb Grader iPad app. Grading workflows are scheduled* to be added into Blackboard Instructor in the coming months.
Although the Blackboard Instructor App states that it includes Collaborate for synchronous web conferencing, at Fresno State you can utilize Zoom for the same purposes. Zoom is available to all students, faculty, and staff to use. Visit the Fresno State Zoom page for more information.
