Blackboard App for Students

Blackboard launched significantly overhauled mobile apps this summer. You’ll want to delete the old apps and install the new ones in order to connect to your Boise State Blackboard courses.

The new Blackboard App for students is similar to the old Blackboard Mobile app, but it has a new logo and some bugs have been fixed. View a demo of the Blackboard App.

Blackboard Instructor App

The all new Blackboard Instructor app is the much-anticipated Blackboard companion app for educators. Instructors may use it to conveniently manage courses, easily communicate with learners, and quickly complete administrative tasks. View a demo of the Blackboard Instructor app.

Other features of Blackboard Instructor include:

  • Quickly preview content and assessments
  • Send course announcements
  • Create discussion board threads and reply to comments
  • Participate in Collaborate virtual classroom sessions

Keep in mind the Blackboard mobile apps allow you to connect with your classes, instructors and classmates from any mobile device. However, as with many mobile apps, you may have limited function compared to the web-browser version.

Delete the Old Bb Mobile Apps

The Blackboard Mobile Learn app, Bb Student app and Bb Grader app are no longer supported by Blackboard and will not longer work to connect to your Boise State Blackboard Courses. These have been replaced with the Blackboard app for students and the Blackboard Instructor app for faculty.
