Vote for the D2L Million$Mission On Facebook

Michael Feldstein, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Mar 27, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Someone has started a Facebook group to petition in support of Desire2Learn's proposal to spend money on education instead of litigation. No word on whether anyone has started a group to oppose the proposal. Commentary also from Michael Korcuska, who notes that "Blackboard has added the new patent to the list of patents on their patent pledge page, so open source projects like Sakai are protected." Meta-media evokes images of Slumdog Millionaire. Michael feldstein can't read the new patent without endangering his new employer; "Does that make sense to you? No? Well, what did you expect? Like I said, it's patent law." Bavatuesday shouts incoherently, "A plague on both their houses!" Barry Dahl calls the D2L offer "Blackboard's last chance." Blackboard, meanwhile, releases a new iPhone application, though as the Chronicle reports, "Students can't take tests or dig into course content using the iPhone application." What, then, you might wonder, does it do? Notify you of new lawsuits?
