BlackBoard Puts Out Mobile Learn App for Sprint Only

BlackBoard Sprint BlackBoard, the popular college learning platform, put out a free BlackBerry app with one catch. It is only available for Sprint BlackBerrys. I am not sure why it is only limited to Sprint BlackBerrys but that seems like the current situation unless schools specifically license the solution for other carriers.

If you have Sprint you can download the BlackBoard app OTA at the links below:

  • Download for your 4.2 BlackBerry
  • Download for your 5.0 BlackBerry

Otherwise you can learn more about the app at this link on BlackBoard’s website or at

The BlackBoard Mobile Learn app includes the following features:

  • Announcements – Assignment due? Class cancelled? This is the place where instructors go to post the news students need to know. Students have instant, on-the-go access to the latest announcements, and instructors can post announcements anywhere, anytime.

  • Discussions – The Discussion Board is a key course communication tool for engaging students and promoting learning. It’s the place students ask and answer questions, and where instructors can respond to one student for the benefit of all. With Blackboard Mobile Learn, instructors and students can review and post to threaded discussions, as well as create new threads, all while on the go.

  • Grades – Want to know how you did on the midterm or your last homework assignment? Students can view their grades right here.

  • Blogs – Read blog posts and interact with classmates by posting comments on their blogs or responding to comments on your own.

  • Tasks – Help students track and manage the progress of various tasks, from turning in homework assignments to reminders to pick up a midterm or purchase a textbook. Tasks allow students to mark when they’ve started a project, when it’s in progress, and when complete.

  • Roster – Wondering who’s in your class? With the class roster, you can quickly see your full class list, making organizing study groups a whole lot easier.

  • Media – Students can access music, videos and images uploaded by their instructors and experience directly from their mobile devices using the appropriate media-specific software.

  • Journals – Read and reflect on your Journal posts and those of your classmates. Both students and instructors can comment on Journals.
