Can those that are promoting / using the student app tell us the major issues with it; and those that are not using / promoting tell me why not?
We promote the Bb Student app but students can still use the Mobile Learn app but instructors can only use the Mobile Learn app.
However, they are often know issues with the Mobile Learn app that when the student switches to the student app, they work. We had an issue today with how the students were viewing their grades which worked properly in the Bb Student app.
In addition, there are some features like easier view of 9.1 content that are bit better on Mobile Learn but it has been improving. If a school is not able to update their mobile B2, functionality like replying to Discussion Board posts will only work in the Mobile Learn app; when they can update it, the students should be able to reply to discussions on Bb Student as well.
The B2 for Mobile for 9.1 versions currently I believe still is not including the Bb Student usage but you can run this query to view all mobile usage:
Mobile Usage Activity - Blackboard Help
Known Issues - Blackboard Help (Known issues for Bb Student)
I hope that this helps in your research on this.
Thanks Toni - very useful.
I've asked similar in the MoCo forum - commenting on this poll. Are you a member of MoCo? If not (everyone), might be worth joining:

Very kindest regadrs to all, David
Thanks for info on this group and your response.
Marissa Dimino, Can anyone join this group or is it for a specific program?
We have had issues in Bb Student of unavailable content or grade columns being made visible to students. Also, faculty dislike that folder or item descriptions are difficult or impossible for students to see (I can't remember which one is just simply not displayed).
We have been recommending Bb Mobile Learn still, for now.
