Modules can be created only if your institution has access to community engagement features.

Several different types of modules can be created from the Administrator Panel. Administrators can use Building Blocks technology to create a completely new and customized module and add it to Blackboard Learn. After modules are created they can be set to appear on the My Institution tab or any other tab that accepts modules. You must have a system role with the Add/Edit trusted content with scripts privilege to add scripts to community modules.

To create a module using Building Blocks technology, go to the Extensions Catalog (available in English only).
