Blackboard Intros Mobile App for Instructors

Blackboard today unveiled Blackboard Instructor, a mobile app designed to help faculty manage their courses, engage students and complete course-related activities inside and outside the classroom.

Through the app, instructors can view course content, participate in discussions and collaborate with students. They can create, review and send out announcements to students, as well as join or host web conferencing sessions using Blackboard Collaborate directly in the app, the company said in a news release.

"We understand that instructors don't have time to waste, and that's why we've created a mobile solution focused on the key workflows and tools most important in their everyday lives," said Brook Bock, vice president of mobile solutions at Blackboard, in a statement. "Whether they're quickly checking in on their courses, reviewing content or communicating with students, Blackboard Instructor puts critical tools in the hands of instructors, whenever and wherever they need it."

Blackboard Instructor is available for both iOS and Android phones and tablets. For more information, visit the Blackboard site.
