Simplify your academic life with the Blackboard app!

We know you’re juggling a lot. Between school, internships, friends, family, and extracurriculars, it’s hard to stay on top of everything. The Blackboard app is here to help you keep your academic life organized, by keeping you up-to-date on assignments and allowing you to interact with your courses, instructors and classmates while you’re on the go.

With the Blackboard app, you can:

  • Access course content anywhere, anytime: Whether you’re at the gym or traveling for spring break, you can check grades, view announcements, access course content and complete assignments.
  • Engage with peers and teachers: Create, browse and reply to conversations using the apps discussions tool.
  • Stay informed in real-time: Tired of refreshing your browser, waiting for that midterm grade to get posted? Get real-time push notifications to your phone about new grades, upcoming tests and past due dates.
  • Prioritize your work: The activity stream prioritizes events and actions for you so that you can stay on top of upcoming assignments and deadlines.
  • Join your virtual classroom: Interact with your professor and classmates via Blackboard Collaborate.
