We are happy to announce that you can now access our
Learning Portal through your mobile device!
The Blackboard Mobile Learn app enables students to receive course notifications and updates to course content from their mobile device. The app can be used with both wireless and cellular networks.
While Mobile Learn is not intended to replace the main browser-based interface to the Learning Portal, the app does provide quick access to course Announcements, Grades, and contribute entries to Blogs, Discussion forums and Journals. New content should be added to the course using your computer desktop. Some media and file formats may not display on certain devices. Note the Mobile Learn app should not be used for assessment purposes such as tests, quizzes, surveys and assignments.
Not only can you view updates to the course, the Dashboard feature gives you the latest information on all of your courses and organizations in one spot!
Once you’ve downloaded the app all you need is your UTORid and password to access your courses.
