Using the Blackboard Learn App

*Blackboard has discontinued the Blackboard Instructor app.  Both students and faculty now use the Blackboard Learn app.*

The Blackboard Learn app provides an intuitive way to interact with different types of features, depending on your role, be it an instructor or a student.

For instance, if you’re an instructor, you’ll only be shown the courses where you're enrolled as an instructor, TA, course builder, or other custom roles. If you are a student, you’ll only be shown the courses where you're enrolled as a student.
