Blackboard App (staff guide)
2. Blackboard App features
Students get automatic, personalised notifications on their mobile devices to help them stay informed. Notifications include new announcements, marks and feedback, new content etc. This means that module activity comes to them.
Assignment due? Seminar cancelled? If students know what's going on, they're more likely to become (and stay) engaged.
c. Mobile Compatible Test
Students are able to answer quizzes and sit exams on their mobile devices. You might use this to do a quick poll in a seminar, or have students test their knowledge of week 1 teaching by answering a short quiz. To create a quiz, view our guide.
d. Marks and Feedback
Students can find out how they did on their last test or assignment by using the Marks tool. They’re sent a notification as soon as one of their submissions is marked.
Discussion Boards are great for engaging students. They can ask and answer questions of each other, and tutors can respond to guide and encourage them. Students can upload media attachments to discussions from a mobile device.
