Sprint/Blackboard Announce Mobile Education Partnership – AT&T, iPhone, Android in the Queue

Blackboard produces a suite of products for K-12 schools and colleges that integrates various aspects of the educational experience with computers. For the most part, this has meant using desktop and notebook computers. They do, however, have a mobile component for their products. Sprint and Blackboard jointly announced:

Blackboard and Sprint Team Up to Bring Mobile Learning to Students at No Additional Cost to Schools

The two companies will offer Blackboard Mobile Learn(TM) – a new application from Blackboard that will let students learn when and where they want – to users of Sprint devices at no additional cost to institutions.

Blackboard Mobile

According to Blackboard’s site (see link above), the first supported devices are an unnamed Blackberry model (Bold) and the iPhone. Their website also has a picture of what looks like some HTC phone running Android. So, we can probably expect:

1. AT&T to make an announcement soon
2. News about Android support soon
