Over 700 higher ed institutions worldwide rely on Blackboard Mobile™ Learn. Nearly 1 out of 3 higher ed institutions with a mobile app in iTunes® or the Android™ Market asked Blackboard for help in building their mobile campus.
By utilizing Blackboard Mobile you can improve the campus experience by giving your students and faculty instant access to campus life and services right from their mobile phone. Anytime, anywhere, they can easily check bus schedules, campus maps with building tours, events calendars, service office hours and faculty and staff directories. They can also access course content, see their grades, read assignments, participate in discussions, collaborate with instructors and much more. Plus, you can integrate your own institution’s services like access to library resources, campus placement office databases or registration and student financial systems.
To further the experience, the Blackboard Connect™ platform helps administrators and faculty communicate more efficiently with students, alumni and the community using text, recorded voice and social media messages. So your reach can extend far beyond campus.
