Blackboard Mobile Learn
Utrecht University’s Blackboard is also available on mobile devices. You can download the Blackboard app from your app store. It is free and it’s made available on Android, Blackberry, iPhone Touch, iPod Touch and iPad.
You can find the app under ‘Blackboard Mobile Learn’. After the download, just select ‘Utrecht University’, log in with your Solis ID, and you will find the app to be ready for use.
The mobile app allows you to see notifications, manage your tasks and use the discussion board. Now you can use Blackboard and make changes whenever you wish, even when you don’t have access to a laptop or computer. Every change you make will automatically show up in the web version of Blackboard.
A lot of the functionality of Blackboard is made suitable for small devices via the app. Be aware that this does not apply to all of the Blackboard features. If a specific feature has not been programmed, the app will lead you to the browserversion of Blackboard, which is less handy if you are using a mobile device.
Recently, a successor for Blackboard Mobile Learn has been launched: BB Student. More about this new app can be found at the page BB Student.
