Blackboard Will Acquire a Competitor, Prometheus, From George Washington U.CRLF

Commentary by Stephen Downes

The discussion lists are in a tizzy about Blackboard's acquisition of Prometheus, one of its competitors. This Chronicle article makes much of Prometheus's 'open code' format (not that Prometheus had any choice: you can't hide Cold Fusion scripts) but in my mind Blackboard wasn't buying the learning management system, it was buying the customer base, about 70 institutions at last count.
