Changes Coming to Blackboard Mobile Learn App Licensing Model

As a pilot at IPFW, access to Blackboard via Blackboard's Mobile Learn app was made available free of charge to the following:

  • Sprint network Android devices
  • Sprint network BlackBerry smartphone devices
  • Sprint network HP webOS devices
  • iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on a Wi-Fi connection

However, Blackboard has developed a new End User licensing model that will soon take effect. Beginning September 17, when IPFW faculty, staff, and students attempt to access Blackboard courses using the Blackboard Mobile Learn app, they will be prompted to pay for its use. This End User license is available to Andoid and iOS devices and will come with these purchase options:

  • $1.99 per year
  • $5.99 for a perpetual license
Hiring Federal Work Study Students

Departments are encouraged to ensure that authorizations are obtained to use Federal Work Study funds prior to sending the new hire paperwork to Human Resources, or prior to making the cost distribution changes for an existing student worker.


A work study check list will help bring a student onboard who receives Federal Work Study earnings. The check list has the contacts for various resources from Career Services, Financial Aid, Bursar, and Payroll.
