  • Arkansas State University Mobile App Users

    Starting May 10, 2021 Arkansas State University will require users of both the Blackboard and Blackboard Instructor mobile apps to authenticate their logins using DUO.

    Unauthenticated Blackboard logins present possible security and academic integrity risks to our Blackboard system

    DUO is Arkansas State University’s two-factor authentication service and is already in use on our Blackboard site for web users. Duo allows our AState users to authenticate anywhere, anytime, with any device using Duo’s options for two-factor authentication methods.

    To correctly authenticate the first time on your mobile apps starting after May 10, all mobile users will need to follow these steps:

    1. Fully log out of the mobile app
    2. Do a new search for Arkansas State University and select our university.
