Yesterday, we announced that Blackboard Mobile Learn is now available to K-12 institutions in North America as well as institutions outside the United States. For more information, check out this blog post from Kayvon, originally posted on the Mobile Garage:
About two months ago, we launched Blackboard Mobile Learn on the Android, iPhone, and Blackberry, adding to our already available iPad application. Our team is very proud of this new platform– we think it offers an engaging, intuitive experience for interacting with course content. And we’ve been hearing positive feedback from some of the institutions that have been using it so far, including at BbWorld in Orlando a couple weeks ago. They’ve shared with us their thoughts on the application’s simplicity, convenience, and elegance, and it’s great to hear their positive input, especially given how much we’ve put into this effort.
Until now, Mobile Learn has been available only for higher-ed institutions in North America. But starting today, Blackboard Mobile Learn is available through an annual license to K-12 institutions in North America as well as all institutions outside the United States. We’re excited to finally make this platform available to our existing K-12 and global customers – and to prospective clients who are interested in comprehensive mobile integration for their learning platform.
Our whole team is excited about being at the forefront of the rapidly evolving field of Mobile Learning. We live and breathe mobile– and we hope our apps reflect that. Still, we’re just scratching the surface of what’s possible in this field. Our goal is to continue pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with mobile learning, and to bring our innovations to as many institutions (and ultimately, students) as possible.
We’re also keen to start talking about our mobile development and direction with more clients around the world. Some of our best use cases and ideas come from the community we’re a part of, and BbWorld Orlando was a great forum for us to swap stories and experiences with clients. As it happens, I’ll be visiting Cairns, Australia in a few weeks for BbSummit Australasia where we’ll be talking mobile with lots of clients down under. Hope to see some of you there.
Until then, we’d love to hear from you here on the blog. Chime in with questions and comments!
