Dock CLE Blocks

blocks imageEvery CLE course has an area called a dock, where course blocks can be moved to help CLE users customize their learning space. By default, all blocks are undocked and appear on left and/or right side of the course. Blocks remain docked as you move from course to course in the CLE and is user specific – so just because an instructor docks a block does not mean students will see the block docked in the course as well.
