Blackboard Mobile For Faculty

Access your UNM Learn courses for interactive teaching and learning anywhere with the Blackboard Mobile Learn app.

Get Started

The Blackboard Mobile Learn App is free to download, but you must buy a Blackboard License to access your classes. Use of the Blackboard Mobile Learn App is not a requirement for UNM Online Courses.

  1. Download the Blackboard Mobile Learn app for your mobile device
  2. Open the app on your device and enter (search for) “University of New Mexico”
  3. Use your UNM NetID and password to login

Features and Limitations

Blackboard Mobile Learn is primarily designed for viewing content and not for uploading content. For full functionality of UNM Learn, use a supported browser and OS listed at http://online.unm.edu/help/learn/support/browsers.

  • Faculty should not expect to be able to upload course content; build tests, quizzes or surveys; grade assignments; or adjust Grade Center options through Blackboard Mobile Learn and instead should use a non-mobile browser for these activities.
  • Because UNM uses more advanced technologies than simple HTML pages, in some cases Mobile will not be able to display the content or display it properly. 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 the Blackboard Mobile app to connect to the UNM system may do so.

In addition, some features – particularly Flash, Java-based, or QuickTime video – may not work properly on all devices.

Blackboard Mobile Learn is a mobile application created and maintained by Blackboard. UNM will enable connectivity to the application, but has no control of the application’s offerings. The current release allows access to limited features and tools within Blackboard. This application is frequently updated (like any mobile application) and new functionality will be offered as Blackboard improves this service.
