Push notifications pop up on your mobile device for course events. Just swipe from the notification to view the content. The type of push notifications generated depend on whether you have the Blackboard Learn Original experience or Blackboard Learn Ultra experience.
Push notifications for Original experience
Push notifications pop up on your mobile device for these events if your institution's system has the Original experience:
- Course announcements
- Test available
- Test due or past due
- New grades
- New content item
- New course available
Push notifications are generated for course announcements but not system announcements. System announcements appear in the app's activity stream. System announcements may also show in Announcements within courses if the sender selected that option.
In certain conditions, the Blackboard app on iOS may receive additional notification types beyond the listed notification types. Android displays only the listed notification types.
Push notifications for Ultra experience
Push notifications pop up on your mobile device for these events if your institution's system has the Ultra experience:
- New grades and feedback
- New content
- Discussion posts and replies by your instructor
- Discussion replies in a thread you authored
- Due date reminders for these content types only:
- Manual grade columns
Select OK if your mobile device asks if you want to allow notifications for the Blackboard app.
You can change how your device displays notifications and turn them on or off.
- iOS: Go to Settings. Select Notifications and locate Blackboard in the list of apps.
- Android: Go to Settings. Locate Apps, select Blackboard, and tap Notifications.
Change push notifications in your Blackboard account
Too many push notifications? Log in to your Blackboard web account on your computer to change the types of notifications you receive.
If you have the Original experience and you're unable to edit the mobile notifications, your school's Blackboard administrator has set them to be always on or always off.
Not receiving push notifications? Make sure you turn on notifications for your Blackboard web account AND on your mobile device.
