Bb Student is a free standalone app for iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices.

For Students

For Instructors

CSU Chico has purchased the "Institutional License" for all campus users, so you do not need to purchase the "personal license" in the Blackboard Mobile Learn app. Usage is free for all Chico State students.

Bb Instructor is coming soon.

Bb Mobile is no longer the preferred mobile app for students.  However, Bb Mobile is required to view organizations.  Bb Student will support viewing organizations in the future.

Bb Grader does exist but TLP does not, at this time, generally recommend this application.

    Full feature listing

    Features may vary by device and may be updated without notice

    Mobile Learn is primarily designed for viewing content and not for creating or editing content.

    • Students should not expect to be able to take tests, quizzes or surveys or participate in chat rooms through Blackboard Mobile Learn.
    • 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.
    • Rich web features – particularly Flash videos, chat rooms and other non-HTML content – may not work properly on mobile devices.

    Blackboard Mobile Learn and the Bb Learn mobile access in the Chico State app are maintained by Blackboard. These apps 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.
