Blackboard Instructor

Blackboard Instructor

Blackboard Instructor is a mobile app that enables you to view course content, connect with students in discussions, and interact with your class in Blackboard Collaborate. The app is available on iOS and Android mobile devices.

How do I download the app?

  1. From your tablet or phone, access the appropriate app store.

    Download on your Apple® device

    Download on your Android™ device

  2. If necessary, search for Blackboard Instructor.
  3. Install the app on your mobile device.
  4. Open Blackboard Instructor and search for the full name of your school.
    If you’re unable to find your school, try modifying your search. If your school is part of a larger institution or district, try searching for that name instead. If you still can’t find your school, contact your school’s IT help desk.
  5. Log in with your Blackboard Learn username and password. These are typically the same credentials you use to access your Blackboard courses on a web browser.

What can I do with the app?

Blackboard Instructor shows only the courses where you’re enrolled as an instructor, TA, course builder, or other custom role with the appropriate permissions. Students use the Blackboard app for students to access their courses instead.

With Blackboard Instructor, you can perform these tasks:

  • Preview course items, assignments, and tests.
  • Participate in discussions.
  • Send announcements.
  • Interact with your class in Blackboard Collaborate.
