blackboard_mobile_learn_logoAs an international student in Australia, it’s really easy to get connected to your course and other important things related to your degree. Almost every university and college has an information portal for students and staff in Australia. Let’s take an example of my university which is Charles Sturt University. CSU provides their student a portal to get all of the essential details related to exams, courses, announcements and enrollment, this portal is known as ‘Interact’ (for CSU ONLY). Just few days before starting of this semester (March-June), I found a very attractive way to get connected with all-what university offers on interact on my mobile. Now, our very own CSU’s interact portal is now powered by Blackboard. You must be thinking that what is ‘Blackboard’? So here is the answer from Blackboard:

Wherever your learning takes place, Blackboard provides the tools that elevate education for all. We believe that learning should be available to access anywhere, at any time, and offer learners the best possible experience. And we’re passionate about the way technology can enable that across universities, school classrooms, professional training and public sector environments. What do you need to achieve?

Let’s take a look at what Blackboard offers and think for education in Australia and rest of the world:

The main purpose of writing this post is to guide all of the existing and new students who are studying in Australia no matter in which university.
