In the 1980s it was personal computers.

In the 1990s, it was the Internet.

In the 2000s, it was social networking.

Now it’s mobile devices.

You see one in most every student’s hand as if it’s a permanent tattoo…and, most likely, it is.

Smartphones and tablets are experiencing market adoption rates far greater than those we saw with the killer tech of the past three decades. College students don’t just hope their schools will incorporate mobile learning into their education…they expect it.

In other words, technology is here to stay…and this time, it’s (got to be) personal.

That’s why we created a web conferencing app that enables students to participate in live sessions on their mobile devices. Developed by experts—meaning educators like you—Blackboard Collaborate mobile is simple enough for students to use starting on the first day of class. It makes all classrooms not only mobile but also interactive.

No matter where you are in the process of going mobile, you’ll learn something valuable from Taking It Mobile: Untethered Learning for 21st Century Student. It’s a crash course in how mobile is being integrated into the blended learning and collaboration world. One factor important to keep front of mind: both instructors and students are having fun with it, and that’s a good thing.

So untether yourself from this blog post and check out Taking It Mobile. Take it from us—it’s the right step to the future.
