Blackboard have released an app on Android and iOS. It’s always handy to have access to information on your phone. It goes with you everywhere, and great for someone who is always on the move.
I also find it so much easier to have an app to use than having to try and find the specific webpage on a mobile. Mobile sites are often dysfunctional or you face the endless zooming and navigating of a desktop site. I use my phone for a good chunk of my online browsing/researching so this is really useful.
Although, for timetables etc. downloading PDF documents to your phone isn’t ideal, and the one criticism I would have is that these should be posted as pages to view rather than links to documents.
I will be using this app throughout my course though as it is so easy to use.
