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 is replacing 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.

The instructor app is currently only available for iOS devices. You can download the Bb Grader app from the iTunes store. Bb Student apps are available on their device specific app stores.

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.
