Blackboard Mobile

Note: Tests are not supported on mobile devices. You will need to use a supported browser when taking or deploying tests. For more information, please see these test taking tips.

Blackboard has replaced its mobile application with two stand-alone apps geared at instructors and students. While official Bb support for Bb Mobile ends in August 2017, the app will still continue to function.

The Mobile Learn app does not always display grades correctly. Students should download the new Blackboard app for use with their courses.

We recommend that mobile apps be used primarily for reading or viewing course content. For creating content, posting, entering grades, or for interaction between instructors and students please use the non-mobile web interface.

Bb Instructor

The instructor app is available for both iOS and android devices. You can download the Bb instructor app from the App Store and from Google Play.

Blackboard app for students

The Blackboard app for students is available for iOS, Android, and Windows devices.

Connecting to UVM

Upon start-up you’ll be asked to search for your university. Searching for “Vermont” may be the most successful search term. Once you find and select “The University of Vermont” you will be prompted to enter your UVM NetID and password. This will log you into the Blackboard mobile interface where you can scroll to find a course and the read/view most content within it.

For further help and more information on using this tool, please contact the Dr. Is In program.
