While you can access Blackboard from your mobile browser, some features may not work well due to the limitations of mobile devices. Instead, you should access Blackboard using the free Blackboard mobile app, which is available for iOS and Android.
Getting started with the Blackboard App
Simply download the application and install on your device. The Blackboard application is free and can be downloaded from the following locations:
Then, after launching the app on your device, search for "Schoolcraft College" and enter your username and password to securely login and begin accessing your Blackboard courses.
Features and limitations of the Blackboard App
With the Blackboard App you can:
- Access course content anywhere, anytime: whether you're at the gym or traveling for spring break, you can check grades, view announcements, access course content, and complete assignments.
- Engage with peers and teachers: Create, browse, and reply to conversation using Blackboard's Discussions tool.
- Attend virtual classes and meetings: Participate in web conferencing sessions using the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra system to view slides, video, and join in with your device's microphone and the text chat
- Stay informed in real-time: Tired of refreshing your browser, waiting for that mid-term grade to be posted? Get real-time push notifications to your phone about new grades, upcoming tests, and past due dates.
There are some limitations, however. You should not use the Blackboard App or your mobile browser to submit Assignments in Blackboard, or to take a quiz or test, unless your professor or instructor has specifically told you that you may do so.
