How to install Blackboard on Windows?

Instruction on how to install Blackboard on Windows 7/8/10 Pc & Laptop

In this post, I am going to show you how to install Blackboard on Windows PC by using Android App Player such as BlueStacks, Nox, KOPlayer, ...

Below you will find a detailed step-by-step guide, but I want to give you a fast overview of how it works. All you need is an emulator that will emulate an Android device on your Windows PC and then you can install applications and use it - you see you're playing it on Android, but this runs not on a smartphone or tablet, it runs on a PC.

If this doesn't work on your PC, or you cannot install, comment here and we will help you!

  5. Once installed, click "Blackboard" icon on the home screen to start using, it'll work like a charm :D

[Notes] about Bluetooth: At the moment, support for Bluetooth is not available on BlueStacks. Hence, apps that require control of Bluetooth may not work on BlueStacks.
