Blackboard, Inc. recently released a free app for accessing Blackboard via a mobile device. UTC Online has enabled this access for UTC users.

Information about the app can be found at:

A few caveats about mobile access.

Access is limited to Android/Blackberry devices using Sprint and iPhone OS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch) using Wi-Fi. The app is a free offering from Blackboard and this is how they chose to release it.  You can’t (and shouldn’t) do all Blackboard functions that you do via a non-mobile web browser. Students should use the app primarily for viewing course content and posting on discussion boards. They should not submit assignments or take Blackboard tests using this app (or on a mobile web browser).
