The most interesting bit is the pair of disclosures at the bottom of the article. What is the "yet-to-be-announced e-Literate project" being sponsored by Pearson? What is the other "yet-to-be-announced e-Literate project" being sponsored by Unicon? Further, why does Michael feldstein call Apereo, a university non-profit, "the closest thing higher education has to the Apache Foundation," as opposed to, say, Moodle? Anyhow, the main point in this article is that Pearson open-sourced Equella, a type of learning object repository, and did it "properly", handing it off to Apereo to run.
