The Blackboard Mobile Learn app has been completely redesigned. The updates made to the Mobile Learn app makes using the app and reading content easier than ever. Some of the new features include:
- Favoriting - Now you can "Favorite" your most used course content, discussion threads, grades etc. for easy access later on. Read more about favoriting.
- Customization - Personalize your course and organization list by hiding, coloring, and reordering your courses. Read more about customization.
- Rich Content - More support for rich content styles like Bold, Underline, Italics, Hyperlinks, and more. Read more about rich content support as well as by downloading the instructor resource on Designing Course Content.
- Unread Counts - Quickly see what's new in your courses from unread discussion posts, content items, grades, etc. Note: Unread counts are coming soon to the iOS Mobile Learn app. Read more about unread counts.
Faculty and students can stay connected with their Blackboard courses and organizations while on the go. With Mobile Learn 4.0 you can quickly and easily disseminate information to your students. Mobile Learn is primarily designed as a communication tool which will allow you to perform tasks such as post announcements, view discussions, create or reply to discussion threads, view journal entries and blog posts. You cannot use Mobile Learn to set up or organize your courses.
Mobile Learn has Dropbox integration, which allows you to manage course documents with ease. Mobile Learn does not have Grade Center integration.
Depending on the particular mobile device, some Blackboard features may not work, but you can always access those features using a browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer on your computer.
