LMS on mobile

Access your LMS subjects anytime, anywhere with the Blackboard app. Available for mobile and tablets on iOS, Android, or Windows.

Blackboard apps are free for all University of Melbourne staff and students, and can be used via mobile data or wireless networks. As with other apps, you are responsible for any data transfer charges incurred, so the recommendation is to use WiFi wherever possible.

Effective August 1, 2017, Mobile Learn has been removed from all app stores. Blackboard has developed two new applications designed to meet the separate needs of students and staff – Blackboard app (for students) and Blackboard Instructor (for staff). The two new mobile apps contain some of the same features as Mobile Learn, with different functionality for the user roles. See a comparison of Bb Student and Mobile Learn.

Current Mobile Learn users will continue to have access to Mobile Learn after is has been removed from app stores and after support ends on August 31st, 2017. However, continued usability of the application cannot be guaranteed.
