Sometimes it’s much more convenient to get your notifications on your phone instead of logging in to Blackboard on a computer. One way to do that is through text messages. These instructions will make it possible to receive text message alerts from Blackboard.

   IMPORTANT: When you receive notifications from Blackboard via text, you will be charged for each text message by your mobile provider unless you have unlimited text messaging.  Please keep this in mind before choosing this option.
