Challenge to Learn
APRIL 1, 2012
I was surfing the web to prepare for that post, when I saw a BlackBoard press release and immediately switch subject: Blackboard acquires Moodlerooms, Netspot. Blackboard is one of the largest LMS vendors in the world and is considered state enemy #1 in the Moodle community. Blackboard has taken an interest in open source since a few years, but they where focusing on Sakai (another open source LMS). So Blackboard bought them a few years ago.
