consolidation continues - BlackBoard + WebCT & more.
The Learning Circuits
OCTOBER 12, 2005
Today BlackBoard announced plans to merge with WebCT; the two leading providers in the higher education eLearning space (BlackBoard alone forecasts US$150M+ for their fiscal year). It also doesn't bode well for WebCT's willingness to play with open source (sorry Harold!) Personally I like its focus on 'on-demand learning' and its Services Oriented Architecture as I think generic content is a tough business to be in.
