New App Makes Using Illinois Compass 2G easier

Technology Services is pleased to announce that a new mobile app has been released that can be used to access Illinois Compass 2g course content.

The new app is called Bb Student, and it will replace the previous app Mobile Learn, which will no longer be supported. Blackboard will be removing Mobile Learn from app stores on December 31, 2016 and support will end on June 30, 2017.
So, download Bb Student from the iTunes Store, Google Play, or the Windows Store. Once you’ve downloaded and installed Bb Student, search for "University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign." Log in with your NetID and password.
Bb Student is available for free. It is recommended that you install it if you are currently using Mobile Learn.  Here are the great features you can expect with the app:

  • Push notifications! Stay up to date and be reminded when a test is coming up or an assignment is overdue. Also get notifications when new grades are posted.
  • Discussions are available! Quickly view and reply to course discussion activity.
  • Hide and show courses. Manage which courses show in your current course list. Tap the box to select which courses you want to hide.
  • Available in over 21 languages, including English, Chinese, Spanish, Korean, Dutch, Italian, German, Japanese, and Portuguese.
