Blackboard Mobile Learn for SLU Global
Blackboard Mobile Learn takes teaching and learning mobile, giving faculty and students access to their SLU Global course content on a variety of mobile platforms, including Android and Apple devices.
The debut of a new Mobile Learn app from Blackboard, the software that powers SLU Global, has been delayed, according to the company. The new app will not be available for at least another week, but customers should be able to use the current Mobile Learn app. Once released, the new app can be purchased through the App Store and Google Play and customers who have the current app will be required to upgrade to this new version.
