Blackboard Mobile Schools Android


blackboardIf you have been a college student in the past 10 years there is a chance you have some experience with Blackboard, the web service designed to enhance the learning experience via discussion boards, hosted documents, contact forms, and electronic assignment submission. In my experience Blackboard caused more headaches than it resolved, but I sure wish I had this Android app when the only way my TA would accept an assignment was through Blackboard, it was due by the start of class, and I had no access to a computer in the classroom.

Unfortunately it looks like Blackboard Mobile Learn is only currently available for Sprint’s Android handsets so many will miss out on this app and any sort of usefulness that may come from it. You can learn more about Blackboard’s new Android app at their mobile site.

  13. Sprint has sponsored the development, so the Blackboard Learn application is available free on their network. The school can opt to pay for a license to Blackboard, in which case it will be available on all networks to access that school’s Blackboard courses.
