You can access your OSU Blackboard course and organization sites on your smartphone or tablet with the Blackboard Mobile app. The mobile app works on Apple (iOS) and Android devices (version 2.2 +).
Instructors and students can download the Blackboard app directly from the Apple or Android store for $1.99 per year, or $5.99 for a lifetime license. The mobile app allows you to use some of the features of a Blackboard course site: view and post announcements, use discussion boards and blogs, view class lists, view grades, and check tasks.
