Mobile AppsCurrently enrolled UMKC students can download, install, and use Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus applications on desktop and laptop computers, free of charge, as part of the Microsoft Student Advantage program.  These applications are the same versions as boxed software available for purchase in stores and include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, and Outlook (Macintosh users can download Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook).  The software is available for download within your UMKC O365 student email account and can be installed on up to five devices.  More information on this benefit, including instructions and FAQs, can be found on the UMKC Information Services website.

BlackBoard recently made a change that allows students, faculty, and staff to utilize the BlackBoard Mobile Learn app for free.  This app allows students to see a phone optimized view of the material in Blackboard for each class.  More information can be found in the iTunes store.
