Powerful Features Made Smaller
Inherent in the phrase ‘non-traditional’ is the idea that the norm doesn’t always work. That’s why professional and career colleges and universities must find different and relevant ways of connecting with their non-traditional students. Blackboard Mobile’s products allow schools to engage with their students and prospective students in a manner that is easy and convenient for them.
Blackboard Mobile Learn
The Blackboard Mobile™ Learn application gives students and faculty access to their courses, content, and organizations on a variety of mobile devices including Android™, BlackBerry® and iPhone OS. Extend your existing Blackboard Learn™ implementation in an engaging and intuitive way. Students and instructors can access documents in multiple formats, read announcements, create discussion threads, upload media, create content items within the course map, comment on blogs, and more — all on the mobile devices they love.
Powerful Features Include:
Link your Dropbox account to Blackboard Mobile Learn on your iOS and Android device without leaving the mobile app! Save content to your personal Dropbox and upload documents to discussions and blogs with a single click.
Any test that includes compatible question types (Multiple Choice, Hot Spot, Fill in the Blank, etc) can be taken from Blackboard Mobile Learn.
Learners can elect to receive automatic, personalized notifications delivered straight to their mobile devices to help them stay informed of announcements, content and course activities.
Social Learning Tools
Discussion Boards – A key course communication tool for engaging students in a forum. You can even upload media from your mobile device as part of a Discussion.
Content - Access content uploaded by instructors and interact with it on the device
Blogs - Read blog posts and interact with other students by posting comments
Blackboard Mobile Central
The Blackboard Mobile™ Central application gives students, faculty, and alumni on-demand access to everything happening at their institution. It helps them fully utilize campus resources and access essential information. They can stay connected to news and activities, contact anyone on campus, or plan their semester. For on-ground schools, they can pull up interactive maps to find out how to get from here to there, view bus routes and bus locations in real time, and even locate library books—all on the go. And when you integrate your Blackboard Mobile Learn app into your Blackboard Mobile Central springboard, they’ll have everything they need whenever they need it, in one place.
