About Blackboard

Blackboard is a free app that enables students in a classroom to be informed via updating content and courses, taking tests and assignments from students, participation and grading courses. It also allows teachers to hold video chats with their students. Thus, it is also great for tutoring sessions. Blackboard is available for free to download on iOS and Android devices.

Blackboard is a great app for online courses and it enables teachers to hold discussions that lead to the acquisition of inputs of students on lesson questions as well as stating announcements like assignment deadlines and test dates. Teachers can also give students their grades via this app. Students and teachers can use the app on their tablets or Smartphones. This app is also ideal for homework management.

Blackboard Review

What is Blackboard

The Blackboard app is designed especially for you as a student to view your course content, grades, participate in courses, and more – right from the Blackboard app on your mobile device.

Is Blackboard a free app?

The Blackboard App for Students allows access to learning content through mobile devices and facilitates course participation. The app can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android phones.

How does the Blackboard app work?

Activity stream: This is the first screen after login and where you can see up-to-the-minute action for all of your courses. For more information see Activity Stream.

Base navigation. Access your courses, grades, and due dates. Any link on the base navigation shows you a global view across all of your courses. For example, Grades and Due Dates are rolled up for all courses, without having to navigate to each one. 

Courses. Swipe left and right to see past and future courses. At the bottom of the Courses list, tap to hide courses you no longer want to see in the list. For more information see Course List.

Course Content. Easily scan course materials and access your content. For more information see Course Content.

Accessing content offline

The offline content feature allows you to view course content without an internet connection. You will need to choose which content to download whilst you still have a connection. You can download available content for an entire course or just specific items. Auto sync ensures your downloads are updated the next time you're online.


  • Check Course Content: The Blackboard App is a great way to quickly check existing course content. For more information see
  • View Announcements: View Announcements from your instructor directly in the app. For more information see Announcements in the Blackboard App.
  • Read and Respond to Discussions: The Blackboard Instructor app allows you to create, read, and respond to threads in the Discussion Board. For more information see Discussions.
  • Submit Assignments: You may view, submit and complete assignments right from the app. For more information see Tests and Assignments. 
  • View Grades: Within the app you can easily view all of your grades. However, please note that you will not be able to see your instructor's feedback. If your instructor provided feedback you will need to access the course on your desktop browser in order to view it. For more information see Grades in the Blackboard App. 
  • Join a Collaborate Ultra Webinar: You join Collaborate Ultra sessions as a guest on your mobile device directly from the Blackboard app. While it is possible to moderate or present in the app, it is not the smoothest experience. If you will be moderating or presenting, you will want to access the session via your web browser (on your mobile device or computer). For more information see Collaborate in the Blackboard App.
