Bb student mobile app* for devices

*This App is a tool students can use to stay connected to courses but does NOT provide full access to all course content. It is recommended that students access On-campus Blackboard courses through a computer on a traditional web browser to ensure all content and tools are accessible.

A complete list of known issues with the Blackboard App is available on the Known Issues page of the Blackboard website.

Blackboard has a student mobile application for students to log in with any device.

To log in, download the Bb Student App > select "UMass Lowell Day School" for On-Campus Blackboard.

To access your OCE courses, log out of the application completely and select “UMass Lowell Online & Continuing Education”.

(There are two apps; the one titled "Blackboard" is the most updated)
