Unified Mobile Blackboard App

08/03/2022

In the past there were two separate mobile apps:

  • The Blackboard App (for students)
  • Blackboard Instructor App (for instructors)

The two apps caused confusion for many instructors. They did not realize that they needed to use a different app to manage their courses. These have been consolidated into a single app for both instructors and students. The user experience will change based on the user’s role within a course. Instructors can use the updated Blackboard app for both Original and Ultra courses. 

Instructors must download the new app, students will be automatically updated. The new app will be available on August 8th, 2022. Support for the Blackboard Instructor app ends in September 2022. 

Get the Blackboard App through Google Play or at the App Store
