Update for new version: hey I have a great idea, instead of adding useful features like being able to post new content, how about we instead fix a crash that occurs only on Android 4.4... I would give negative if possible. Since when did "updates" remove major features, such as being able to add course content? Blackboard, you're clearly beyond your useable shelf life. Either bring back Blackboard Learn or bring back the basic features you had in the prior app, this new one is just garbage.
Blackboard is a wonderful system. This app is pathetic. Is a slap in the face for every instructor that works long hours trying to help their students. You cannot email students, email announcements, view rosters, edit grades, edit quizzes, view grades, nor do practically anything that an instructor should be able to do. I was able to make a online announcement by could not schedule one nor email it to my students. As a teacher who has fought for my school to keep using Blackboard, this app has disappointed me severely. I can only hope that some app developer or the corporation that runs Blackboard actually looks at these reviews and fixes list app to make it usable for teachers.
It's terrible!! I can't do anything in it like the old app. I just went and used the old app and I had to basically say give me the website side so I can upload some photos from lecture this past week. The point of the app for us as teachers is not have to Crack open our laptops. Please fix this app. It's junk right now. I'd be happy to beta test a real product for you.
A decent first step, but not having the ability to enter grades is a big missing feature. Knocked it down to two stars once I found you cannot edit content.
Playing videos through Blackboard is essential and they will not play through the app. This is a serious problem.
I see no point to it - cannot see enrollments, post announcements, send emails or texts, upload move or delete content, open or close online tests, or respond to student queries (let alone grade).
- Resolves crash for some users on Android 4.4.x when loading a course
- Fixes issue that prevented printing of large text files
