Third-party tools such as Building Blocks (B2) and Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) are used to connect external learning tools into the Blackboard LMS in order to add or give faculty, students, and administrators access to supplemental information or functionality to complete coursework. Below is a list of the Building Blocks and LTIs currently in use at CUNY. Links to manuals or instructions for their use are provided where available.
Please note: Some Building Blocks and LTIs are installed for particular campuses only.
In order to suggest that a new Building Block or LTI be considered for use at CUNY, please fill out the request form and contact your local campus Blackboard Administrator. All Building Blocks and LTIs are reviewed in an exhaustive testing process (Building Block Procedure) and must receive approval before being installed in the Blackboard production environment.
