January Mobile App Updates: Blackboard app & Blackboard Instructor

Blackboard Instructor Version 1.6

I'm excited to announce that offline capabilities are now available in Blackboard Instructor, following last month's release of offline capabilities in the Blackboard app. The offline feature provides continuous access to course content regardless of internet connection. Instructors can download available content for an entire course or just specific items. The auto-sync setting ensures downloads are updated the next time you're online.

Blackboard App Version 3.4

We have also improved push notifications in the Blackboard app - students will now receive push notifications for new announcements, content availability, and when tests are available.  For more information on push notifications please visit the notification help page.


Where do I get access to this release?  

  • Download the latest version of  Blackboard app (version 3.4) on iOS and Android.  The Blackboard Instructor app (version 1.6) is available to download on iOS and Android.
  • For more details on the updates please see the release notes for the  Blackboard and Blackboard Instructor apps.
