Building blocks are Blackboard's way of extending functionality. Building blocks vary widely in what they bring to Blackboard to include: in class polling, publisher content, help documentation, mobile services and Blackboard delivered core modules. To ensure the stability of the system, we evaluate all new building blocks and test updates to existing ones.
Blackboard campus administrators can start the process to evaluate a new building block by filling out a Google form.
We are currently evaluating the following building blocks.
If you would like to help in testing or see the new features, if any, feel free to go to our testing environment, https://staging.courses.maine.edu/. The schedule of updates are listed below.
