MOBILE LEARN

What is Blackboard Mobile Learn?

The Blackboard Mobile Learn app works with our SacCT (Blackboard) system to allow students and instructors access to teaching and learning wherever and whenever they want through two-way interactions on mobile devices. The Blackboard Mobile Learn app is a native mobile app for the most popular mobile platforms, including Android™, iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad®.

The Mobile Learn app allows you to:

  • view announcements, grades, and class rosters
  • participate in blogs and discussions
  • access course journals and media
  • track and manage tasks

Getting Started

Sacramento State has purchased the "Institutional License" for all campus users, so you do not need to purchase the "personal license" app.

Follow these steps to begin using the Mobile Learn app with SacCT .

  1. Download the application and install it on your device. The Blackboard Mobile Learn application can be downloaded from the following locations:
    1. Android Market
    2. iTunes App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch
  2. After launching the app on your device, search for "sacramento" to locate California State University, Sacramento.
  3. Select our university and the SacCT login page appears.
  4. Login with your SacLink ID and password to access your SacCT courses with the Mobile Learn app.

Tutorials

Watch one of the Tutorials to learn more about Mobile Learn. Note: Only the Android™, iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad® devices are supported.

Limitations

Mobile Learn is primarily designed for viewing content and not for uploading content.

  • Students should not expect to be able to take tests, quizzes or surveys; submit assignments; or participate in chat through Blackboard Mobile Learn.
  • Faculty should not expect to be able to upload course content; build tests, quizzes or surveys; grade assignments; or adjust Grade Center options through Blackboard Mobile Learn.
    • Although tests can be taken on mobile devices via the Mobile Learn app, we recommend that you NOT create mobile tests using the Mobile Compatible Test option in SacCT due to the following limitations.

  • In addition, some features – particularly Flash, Java-based, or Quicktime videos – may not work properly on all devices.

Blackboard Mobile Learn is a mobile application created and maintained by Blackboard. Sacramento State will enable connectivity to the application, but has no control of the application’s offerings. The current release allows access to limited features and tools within Blackboard. This application is frequently updated (like any mobile application) and new functionality will be offered as Blackboard improves this service.
