Blocks are items which may be added to the left or right or centre column of any page in Moodle. They may also be added to the centre of the Dashboard. See the screencast: What are blocks?

). If a responsive theme (such as 'Clean' or Boost theme) is used, blocks will be accessible from the bottom of smaller screens, below the main content.
Note it is also possible to dock blocks when using the Clean theme if desired. We can theme the position of blocks in the centre of pages as well if we are able to create custom themes.
Available blocks include:
