Mobile Options for Faculty

Instructors are encouraged to use Blackboard Mobile Learn to access their HuskyCT courses on the go!  Later this year, we anticipate Blackboard will release the long-awaited Bb Instructor app, which is designed specifically for instructors.

Bb Grader is also an option for instructors.  The Bb Grader app is designed specifically for viewing and grading student assignments.  It does not include the same features as the Blackboard Mobile Learn app.
