Oklahoma State Boots Blackboard

Alfred Essa, NOSE, Aug 30, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's probably unrelated to the lawsuit, but Oklahoma State has decided to drop Blackboard in favour of Desire2Learn, showing that there is at least one university out there not afraid of Blackboard's supposed patent.

Alfred Essa also looks at Blackboard's claim that it supports open source - and laughs. As Charles Severance, the Executive Director of the Sakai Project, comments: "The path to interoperability and free exchange of innovation *is* for us to all to adopt and run Blackboard and then we can freely innovate by exchanging Building Blocks - the logic is completely obvious :)"
