The story is that "Anthology and Blackboard have announced a merger, pairing the former's enterprise software for enrollment management... with the latter's learning management software." It feels more like an acquisition, because "the new company will be led by Jim Milton, current chairman and chief executive officer of Anthology." It's funny, though - the more these companies grow and the wider their enterprise capabilities become, the less relevant they feel, to me at least, to educational technology and online learning. They may as well be SAP or some such thing. But I guess they're making a difference, hm?
