NDSU's Blackboard has gone Mobile!

NDSU Blackboard users with Web capabilities on an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry, Android or HP webOS can access Blackboard information in a format designed for smaller displays. Just go to your device's app store and search for "Blackboard Mobile Learn." Download and install the app. When prompted to find your school, search for "North Dakota" (not NDSU) and choose North Dakota State University. You will need to log in just like you normally do for Blackboard.

For more information, visit the Blackboard Mobile support page to find out how to download the App for your device and learn what you can do with Bb Mobile.
