There are a number of mobile apps available to support your studies at the University of Cumbria. These apps allow you to log into your university account and read/edit your learning content and files in Blackboard, PebblePad, OneDrive, etc.

If you only install one app, please ensure that it is the Student Hub app as this provides direct access to all of the systems and services required to support your learning.

  • Staff Only

    Blackboard

    You can use the Blackboard Student App (above), but this will only allow you to view courses on which you are a student.

    It is much more useful to install the Blackboard Intructor App which provides you with much more functionality and allows you to manage your courses from a mobile device.

    Office 365 / Outlook / SharePoint / Skype for Business

    In order for staff to use Office 365 / Microsoft Apps on a personal mobile device, the Microsoft InTune App needs to be installed and authenticated first. Please log into the StaffHub and search for InTune for the instructions.

    Installation of Intune will permit access to Outlook, OneDrive, SharePoint, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Skype for Business.

    Pebble Pocket

    Pebble Pocket works in the same way for students and staff (see above for links).
