The default block system in Drupal is adequate for simple sites, but if you need more control, then the Context module is a great solution.
The Context module sets up conditions and reactions for blocks, allowing you to place them anywhere, for any reason.
In this class, Robert gives us a great tour through the module, providing a number of examples. He also offers his thoughts on the differences between Context and Panels for managing blocks.
