Blackboard Mobile App

I have received a few questions about how to most effectively use CampusConnect on the answer to that question is the Blackboard Mobile Learn App!  It is a great App that I have on my iPad and my iPhone and it allows me to quickly and easily connect to my courses even when away from my computer.

Through this app, I have been able to:
  • Participate in discussion boards from anywhere;
  • Reset a quiz or exam for a student if needed without having to wait until I get back to my computer;
  • Grade Assignments;
  • Email students from anywhere;
  • And many other key CampusConnect activities.
The grade center is a bit less usable through the App, but there are so many other features that make this such a great App that little drawback hasn't even been a drawback for me.

I was initially told that the App needed WiFi connection, but I have actually had great success on it via 4G too, so it truly is mobile!

This App is available to you as well as your students!  The download is "Free" via the App store but there is an in-app fee of $1.99/year or $5.99/lifetime access when you go to use the App for the first time. 

If you'd like, download it and give it a try and I hope you find it as beneficial as I do as a means to stay even more connected to your students.
