A clean start for Blackboard

Blackboard's unexpected move to buy learning management systems Moodlerooms and NetSpot has led to a lot of misinformed criticism but it's actually good news for online learning.

Last week Blackboard announced that it had acquired open source learning management system (LMS) providers Moodlerooms and NetSpot, and launched the Blackboard Education Open Source Services Group. In addition, Blackboard hired Sakai Foundation board member, Charles Severance, to lead its Sakai initiatives, and extended support for Angel indefinitely. It will support clients using open source technologies in an effort to build on its existing focus of “supporting the entire education experience.”
