Notes from Blackboard

  • Blackboard recommends using their mobile apps for viewing content and participating in discussion boards. 
  • For Android users:  On April 10, 2019, Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) was discontinued. Due to this change, the Blackboard apps migrated to Google’s new Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) in the March release. To maintain push notifications on your device, please update to Blackboard App 4.0 or Blackboard Instructor 2.5.
