Blackboard has apps available for instructors and students to access course on Blackboard. These might be helpful for students who do not have access to laptops, desktops, etc. at home.
These apps can be used on phones and tablets and are available on iTunes App Store and Google Play.
As the educational community responds to COVID-19, you may be receiving emails from vendors offering limited-time free access to their tools and platforms. The Open Educational Resources Committee and the Library wanted to share some online resources that are always free or affordable. Please remember that students may be experiencing greater financial stress than usual if they’re not able to work due to the coronavirus. You might want to consider investing your time in trying resources and tools that will continue to be free to you and your students after the crisis is over.
Below are some places to start finding free and open resources. Or just contact me with your topic or learning objectives, and I will look for you!
