You asked for it. Campbell University delivered.
This week Campbell University announced the installation of Blackboard Mobile Learn. Mobile Learn will allow Campbell University faculty, staff, and students to download the App for FREE on both iOS and Android devices including mobile phones and tablets.
Simply download the App, launch the App, and search for Campbell. Once you have selected Campbell, log in to Blackboard using the same log in credentials you would normally use to log in to Blackboard.
For faculty and staff: Once logged in, you will be able to enter your courses, mark your current courses as your favorites (for easy access), view Discussion Board postings, and add Course Content to existing Course Menu Content Areas using only the App.
To complete more advanced functions, select the View in Browser feature. The View in Browser feature will give you a familiar Blackboard browser view. From the View in Browser feature, you can edit your course, access the Control Panel, view Campus Pack content, and access/edit most features/tools available on your desktop or laptop computer.
For students: This app gives students access to their courses, Course Content, Discussion Boards, and Grades (as long as a link is provided in the Course Menu by the faculty member). Students also have access to the View in Browser feature to allow the completion of Assignments, Journals, Blogs, and more. Beyond this, students can opt in to Notifications on their mobile device to be notified when items are graded or when new Course Content is posted.
Important Note: Only Mobile Compatible Test (tool available in the Assessment Action Bar Menu) can be taken by students on a mobile device. Other assessments such as the traditional test and survey features may not work properly with certain question types.

The App is a feature that is offered as a convenience for faculty, staff, and students, but like other Apps,it is not supported by the Campbell Helpdesk or Distance Education. For questions about Blackboard's Mobile Learn App, please use our 24/7 Blackboard support by calling 1-866-886-4846 or clicking the help link at the bottom of Blackboard for chat and email.
