Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Transitioning from Mobile Learn to Blackboard’s Bb Student & Bb Instructor Apps:
Effective August 1, 2017, Mobile Learn will be removed from all app stores. After August 31, 2017, Blackboard will no longer support Mobile Learn. Clients should begin transitioning to Blackboard’s Bb Student (available now) & Blackboard’s Bb Instructor apps (scheduled for release in July 2017). These two applications offer an enhanced, user-centric mobile experience that puts critical teaching and learning tools right in users’ hands. All users can expect increased efficiency with our simplified workflows built to complete on the go.
Mobile Learn refers to Blackboard’s mobile application that allows students and instructors to access Learn from their mobile devices. Mobile Learn was released in 2011 and made available to Blackboard Learn customers with a mobile license.
To provide students and instructors with an enhanced experience, Blackboard has developed two new applications designed to better meet the needs of students and instructors – Bb Student & Bb Instructor. Bb Student is currently available globally in iOS, Android, and Windows app stores and Bb Instructor is scheduled to release globally in iOS and Android app stores in July 2017.
Now: Bb Student is already available globally in iOS, Android, and Windows app stores
July 2017: Blackboard’s Bb Instructor is scheduled to release globally in iOS and Android app stores
August 1, 2017: Mobile Learn is scheduled for removal from app stores
August 31, 2017: Support for Mobile Learn is scheduled to end
Impact to Current Mobile Learn Users:
Current Mobile Learn users will continue to have access to Mobile Learn after is has been removed from app stores and after support ends. However, Blackboard cannot guarantee continued usability of the application. Apple has indicated that 32-bit apps, of which Mobile Learn is, will not be supported on future versions of iOS.

Do not use special characters like these ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) + = |\/ ? “ ‘ : ; ~ in naming any items in Blackboard Learn (assignments, items, discussion boards, forums, threads, posts, announcements, tests, etc.). They can potentially cause errors to occur. It is best to use only letters, numbers, underscore and hyphen.
As the web analytics show that over 20% of ATU's BbLearn users are still using Internat Explorer, and 10% of those are still using either IE8 or IE9, I just want to bump this best practice up to the top of the announcements.
For Blackboard Learn, it is strongly recommended that students and instructors use:
1. The latest non-beta version of Mozilla Firefox (stable channel) for PC and/or Mac computers as it is the most compatible with our Blackboard Learn system.
2. The latest version of Chrome (stable channel) is also a good choice.
While Internet Explorer 9, 10, & 11 are listed as being compatible, there are many common issues being reported due to using IE with Compatibility Mode turned on. If you are going to use IE for Blackboard Learn, please make sure to turn off Compatibility Mode. (Click the Compatibility View button that appears next to the Address bar.)
