Blackboard - Device Functions

Although you can enter Blackboard from web browsers on both computers and mobile devices, there are differences.

Most of your work in Bb is best done on a computer browser.   We recommend Firefox.

Mobile Device Browsers compatible with Bb

  • Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Safari (iOS)

Mobile device browsers do not have the same components as computer browsers.  Not all Bb functions and tools will work on a mobile device.
Mobile browsers are best suited for viewing course content while on the go.
Mobile Apps have other functions.

Do not take tests on a mobile device or with WiFi on a computer.

Use computer browsers to

  • Use the full-featured Content Editor
  • Upload/Download most files
  • View videos in Flash format
  • Create and take tests – avoid WiFi
