Strength in Numbers, Carl Straumsheim, Ignatia Webs, Mar 26, 2014

It has been a long time since I've had occasion to refer to XanEdu in thesse pages, but news comes today that "XanEdu and AcademicPub will merge as quickly as the two parties can sign the paperwork -- a response to a textbook market still clamoring for an all-of-the-above solution to course materials."

OriginalWorks, Various authors, XanEdu, Jul 23, 2003

This is interesting. I described last week a system that allows you to publish your own book online. Well, XanEdu is today marketing a system called OriginalWorks, a system that "specializes in publishing academic work for use in your classroom, transforming your own personal work into a professional, high quality book," according to the mailout.

Interview With Lew Gossage Senior Vice President And General Manager Of XanEdu, Unknown, Distance-Educator.Com, Feb 24, 2003

If you don't know anything about XanEdu, an online service that provides copyright cleared "Course Packs" to educators, then you should read this interview to get an overview. If you are familiar with the service and want something a bit deeper, then you will be disappointed by this shallow and stale interview. Whay we need - but didn't get - is some cogent account of how Course Packs fit into the world of learning objects, an account of how individual writers or small publishers can tap into ...

Academic Resource Center, Blackboard, May 18, 2001

Provided by BlackBoard. Searchable directory of academic resources available for use in online courses. I didn't see any commercial products per se as I browsed about, but their affiliation with XanEdu suggests that full commercial learning object support is well on its way for BlackBoard users.
