Blackboard Mobile Apps

Bb Student app has a new name!

Starting mid-July, you’ll see the name change to Blackboard and a new app tile. The app’s functions remain the same. Be sure to update your app to the newest release. After August 31st, Blackboard Mobile Learn app will no longer be supported, please download the Blackboard App before that date.

Blackboard has created two mobile apps to connect, learn, and grade anytime and from anywhere: Blackboard App and Blackboard Instructor. Northeastern has enabled connectivity to the application but has no control of the application’s offerings. Both applications are frequently updated (like any mobile application) and new functionality will be offered as Blackboard improves this service.

Blackboard App

The Blackboard App, previously named Blackboard Student, is available on IOS, Android, and Windows devices. The Blackboard app is designed especially for students to view content and participate in courses. You can also join Blackboard Collaborate Ultra sessions using the Blackboard App. For helpful tips on creating a mobile-friendly course, visit this Blackboard guide.
