Features and Limitations of Blackboard Instructor

Blackboard Instructor currently allows you to view course content and connect with students. Blackboard plans to add additional functionality over time, including grading capabilities. For full functionality of UNM Learn, use a supported browser and OS listed at

  • Because UNM uses more advanced technologies than simple HTML pages, in some cases Blackboard Instructor may not be able to display the content or display it properly. In addition, some features – particularly Flash, Java-based, or QuickTime video – may not work properly on all devices. 
  • UNM’s officially supported method for interacting with courses in the LMS is through a supported browser. We are making the mobile interface available so that users who wish to use Blackboard Instructor to connect to the UNM system may do so.

The Blackboard Instructor app is created and maintained by Blackboard. UNM will enable connectivity to the application, but has no control of the application’s offerings. Some UNM Learn features and tools may not appear or work within the app.  Blackboard's mobile applications are regularly updated (like any mobile application) and new functionality will be offered as Blackboard improves the service. UNM Learn Support recommends keeping Blackboard Instructor updated in order to implement all feature improvements and bug fixes.
