Appsembler Enterprise XBlock directory

Note: Tahoe customers should refer to our list of Open edX XBlocks Deployed in Tahoe.

Here is a useful list of XBlocks that Appsembler has vetted and may be used on your Enterprise Open edX site. It is important to note that before an  XBlock can be enabled, it must first be installed by and Appsembler Engineer. The number of XBlocks you can have installed on your site is dependent upon the tier of your subscription.

Refer to this list if you ever need to know the technical name of an XBlock to put into the Advanced Module list of your course in order to enable that XBlock.
