often blocks provide useful features for users. But with the new ultra mobile themes, these blocks are often not seen by the students. They are hidden most of the time. So if somebody wants to attract attention to a feature of a block, it is quite difficult to make sure everyone sees the block.
To solve that problem, the idea is to create an activity (resource) similar to the "label" resource. When adding the activity, the block of which the content should be displayed on the course page can be selected from a dropdown (Maybe limit choices to blocks available within the course). The block content is then rendered on the course page, similar to a label content.
Another solution of the problem would be to make it possible to place blocks anywhere on a page. But that means changing Moodle core so chances are high, that this won't ever make it into core.
