DID YOU KNOW? Commonly used resources such as Blackboard, LinkedIn Learning, VoiceThread and more utilize apps for mobile devices.
Please note: Students and faculty should use Google Chrome and not rely on the Blackboard App as the main source of access for information, coursework, or updates. Use a computer or laptop for the main access method to complete all coursework and view grades. While mobile applications are convenient, everything related to a student’s course should be submitted and finalized in a web-browser with a reliable internet connection.
Contact the CTLE for more information and training on recommended mobile learning tools!
