NOTE TO DEVELOPERS: this app does not allow you to watch recordings. This app is only capable of allowing students to watch the live lectures. This information should be stated somewhere in the info tab. I just spent way too much time fumbling around on the website and calling your tech support number just to find this information and I'm sure all of the other 1 star reviews are from people with the same problem.
It will not playback recordings. Which defeats the mobile accessibility for me on the go. It works well enough for in session chat and visual presentations. I also found out I can login twice through phone and computer lol
Finally figured it out. You have to open up the session on your phones Internet (Internet for androids, safari for apple) not Google Chrome and not the canvas app. Then open the session and join (make sure the blackboard is closed before you try to join) and then it will let you do it
Buggy Seems to not like multitasking. Re-entry into the program while a live class is running or a recorded session from the home screen, task list, or being interrupted by a phone call requires a combination of button pressing and tapping to get back into the session. Weak.
the app does not allow you to watch recordings. only live sessions. what a fail. please get with the times and make it more flexible and easy to find your sessions by connecting it to the regular blackboard app.
It simply does not work. The app will redirect you to the website for the live class, which then redirects you back to the app, and so on. It's very badly built.
