Welcome to the Blackboard Building Blocks
Open Source distribution site. This site contains open source and
freeware Building Blocks software tools built for use with the Blackboard 5.5 e-Education Suite of Software.
The primary purpose of this site is to provide a resource for Blackboard customers to find and use Open Source
Blackboard Building Blocks applications.
The open source software available on this site has been authored by
many generous individuals and organizations. It is through their
efforts that these useful and high quality software packages exist.
This site also provides a community home for developers who are
interested in creating Open Source Building Blocks applications.
Support for developers is available through the Bb-Open_Src listserv
(see sidebar). Within the community, we hope to:
Provide great examples of open-source, full-featured Building blocks applications.
Encourage the development of an abundance of new, high-quality Building blocks.
Provide a starting place for developers who desire some help in getting started with Building Blocks development.
Please note that the http://bbug.ca site has now merged with the Bb Open Source site and the discussion forums are now here
and accessible from the menu on the left.
