Blackboard Instructor

Blackboard Instructor enables instructors to view course content, connect with students in discussions, and interact with a class in Blackboard Collaborate. The app is available for iOS and Android mobile devices.

The initial launch of Blackboard Instructor in July of 2017 focused on key communication tools, as we know that student engagement is critical to success. Grading capabilities are currently being validated by users and will follow in the coming months.* In the meantime, the Bb Grader app is available for instructors to access mobile grading.

  • Dropbox cloud storage integration in the Mobile Learn app stopped functioning on June 28, 2017 due to changes to the Dropbox platform.
