Blackboard Instructor

Blackboard Instructor is a mobile app that enables you to view course content, connect with students in discussions, and interact with your class in Blackboard Collaborate. The app is available on iOS and Android mobile devices.

Blackboard Instructor shows only the courses where you’re enrolled as an instructor, TA, or course builder. Students use the Blackboard app for students to access their courses instead.

With Blackboard Instructor, you can perform these tasks:

  • Preview course items, assignments, and tests.
  • Participate in discussions.
  • Send announcements.
  • Interact with your class in Blackboard Collaborate.

Course list

After you log in, you see all your current courses where you’re enrolled as an instructor, TA, or course builder. You can also see which of those courses are hidden from students.

Course overview

You can also view a list of instructors and send email to them. Your courses may look different than they do in a web browser, but you’ll easily navigate through your content.
