5 TIPS TO IMPROVE THE MOBILE EXPERIENCE
Blackboard Announcements become mobile phone texts or notifications. Communicate with students in real time, such as tailoring your announcements to meet module deadlines.
SMALLER SCREEN SIZES
Mobile devices shift & resize content to display on a touch screen. Keep menu titles & page headings concise to prevent loss of meaning if it is cropped.
Remove barriers & make your content available on all devices. Speak to the TEL Team about MP3, MP4 & HTML5 multimedia formats.
MOBILE DATA CHARGES
Mobile internet can be slow & expensive. Reduce download sizes by compressing pictures, reducing file sizes & highlighting essential reading.
GRADES & FEEDBACK
Add your marks & feedback to Blackboard & Turnitin. Allow students to instantly access them on their phone, wherever they are.
