This was posted on #TechTuesday but did not publish until Thursday, August 30, 2012 because of technical difficulties.
I know I have quite a few readers who are still in school and, therefore, I am going to cater this Tech Tuesday to those of you still in the struggle.
The iPhone/iPod Touch has an updated Blackboard application that is more effective than previous ones. The updates will undoubtedly make for easier learning, whether you are in the classroom or on the go.
Some features of the app include:
-Reminders for what is due when
-Push notifications of course updates, such as changes in room status, cancellations of classes, etc.
-The ability to post on discussion boards
-Course rosters and contact information of classmates
All in all, it really helps you tie your academic life together. I would recommend all of you students whose professors utilize Blackboard to any extent download this app.
