Sommaire

Définition étendue

Un Building Block est un simple ensemble de fichiers installé sur le serveur d’application Blackboard. Cet ensemble de fichiers est en fait une application web structurée de telle sorte que le serveur puisse prédéfinir des points d’entrée afin de localiser les ressources pour ensuite appeler les fonctionnalités du dit Building Block. Les points d’entrée sont des Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) qui sont inscrits dans la base de données du Blackboard Learning System.
