Today Blackboard announces the launch of the Blackboard Mobile Learn iPad application. Live on the App Store now, the app is free to students and institutions (institutions must enable it first, in a free and easy process, given the amount of secure information it provides).
Two new posts today at Bb Blogs bring reflection on this announcement. First, at the Mobile Garage blog, Kayvon Beykpour, Vice President of Blackboard Mobile, talks about the approach his team took with the first Bb Mobile Learn app and includes a link to a short video demo which offers a short walkthrough of the app itself.
At RayHBlog, Blackboard Learn President Ray Henderson offers his thoughts on product innovation and refinement as seen through the lens of today’s Bb Mobile Learn announcement and the coming soon launch of Bb Learn 9.1.
Comments are on at both blogs, so weigh in with your reactions/comments/questions.
