Vanderbilt iTunes U Building Block

Welcome visitors from other institutions!

Vanderbilt is happy to distribute its iTunes U Building Block to other Blackboard institutions.  Though we are happy to get you started with our Building Block (installation and configuration), we cannot provide support beyond that.  However, if something is broken, or not quite right, please let us know immediately so we can address it.

Our current versions are listed in the gray box to the right. Version 1.0.4 is no longer supported, but we provide it for our friends still on Bb 7.x.

A change in Blackboard's tag libraries between Bb 9.1 SP5 and Bb 9.1 SP6 (just like changes made between Bb 9.0 and Bb 9.1) caused issues with the Building Block. Please see the list to the right to determine which version you need to install on your server. (All three versions are packaged with the downloadable ZIP file.)

PLEASE NOTE: After Apple made changes to the administration of the public sites, the Vanderbilt Building Block is no longer able to connect to those sites. When making configurations, make sure you deselect the public option.

Note about Regularly Scheduled Maintenance:

Though we like to have our servers up 24/7, there are times when we need to take them down to perform regular maintenance. Please note that we will reserve the third Sunday morning of each month to perform these tasks. Blackboard may be down between the hours of 6:00 AM and 10:00 AM the THIRD Sunday of each month. If we need to be down longer (or not at all), we will provide 2-3 week notice that will be posted on the main Blackboard website.

Please know that there may be times that we need to take the server down immediately in emergency situations. Information about such downtime can always be found on the main Blackboard website.
