Blackboard Mobile App

When to Use?

This article provides an overview of the Blackboard mobile application for students and instructors.


Note: If you used the Blackboard app before August 8, 2022, you MUST delete and reinstall it. 

What's New?

There is now an option to organize the landing pages of the app. The filters have been added to courses, organizations, and grades. Below is an example of the new feature.


In the past, Blackboard had two separate mobile applications for Students and Instructors. With this release, they are consolidating to a single app for both instructors and students. The user experience will change based on the user's role within a course.

Within the app, instructors will be able to:

• Manage course content and assessments
• Get alerts on submissions ready for grading
• Grade assignments
