Blackboard has updated its mobile apps. There are two main changes

Bb Student

The Bb Student app has been renamed to Blackboard. With the latest release of the app, that name change is now official across iOS, Android, and Windows app stores. For more information about the latest release of the Blackboard app (version 2.9.8), view the Blackboard app release notes.

The new Blackboard Instructor app

Blackboard Inc has released a new mobile app geared specifically for instructors. The app will allow instructors  to:

  • Preview course items, assignments, and tests.
  • Participate in discussions.
  • Send announcements.
  • Interact with your class in Blackboard Collaborate.

The Blackboard Instructor app is also a good way to see how students will work with the material of a course using the Blackboard app
