Question: What is the policy for Mobile Learn?


Blackboard Mobile:

Blackboard has a Mobile app which is registered and configured on the CTDLC Blackboard servers (currently COSC, UB and BB10 - shared). Users will also need to install an app on their phone in order to view content published via Blackboard Mobile. CTDLC is not supporting the app directly. We will make sure the building block is installed and configured in the Blackboard server, but we cannot support the mobile app since it relies on content provided by the cellular carriers (via their app store) and Blackboard, Inc. Once we confirm that the block is configured in Blackboard, the user would have to resolve any issues with the app through the carrier or Blackboard support directly since they are responsible for publishing and maintaining the app.

Assignment due? Class cancelled? This is the place where instructors go to post the news you need to know, giving you instant access to the latest information.

The Discussion Board is a key communication tool for you and your professors. It is the place where you can ask and answer questions, review and create new threads, and your instructors can respond to posts—all while on the go.

Interact with your classmates by reading and posting comments on their blogs, or responding to comments on your own.

Track and monitor the progress of various tasks, from setting up a meeting with your T.A. to turning in papers. Mark when you've started a project, when it's in progress, and when it's complete.

Wondering who's in your class? The roster enables you to see your full class list, making it a whole lot easier to organize study groups.

Access music, videos, and images uploaded by your instructors directly from your mobile device.

Read and reflect on your Journal posts, and those of your classmates. Both you and your instructors can comment on Journals.
