Mobile Learn

Access your course content, discussion boards, grades and announcements on your mobile device with the Blackboard Mobile Learn app.

The Blackboard Mobile Learn app for iOS and Android is meant to work alongside myCourses and should not be used as a substitute for a computer.

We highly recommend using an internet browser for most activities to avoid potential loss of work, as this material cannot be recovered from mobile devices.

The Blackboard Mobile Learn App is ideal for:
  • Receiving alerts and notifications in real-time
    • New grade posted
    • Course site is available
    • Class announcements from your instructor (cancellations, room changes, etc.)
  • Viewing course blogs, journals, and wikis
  • Viewing grades
  • Managing tasks

The Blackboard Mobile Learn App is NOT recommended for:
  • Submitting graded assignments
  • Posting files
  • Participating in discussions
  • Taking tests/assessments

Additional information and limitations:
  • The Blackboard Mobile Learn app is free to download, however Blackboard does charge a one-time fee of $1.99 to access myCourses. This fee is paid through the app.
  • Use your entire UMass Dartmouth email address ( to log in, not just your username.
  • In order to accommodate the small screens of mobile devices, Blackboard Mobile Learn removes all embedded multimedia content from course pages with no indication to the user, thus making it easy to miss important content when browsing course sites.
  • Links to external websites may not work the same way that they do when accessed using a PC internet browser.
