Blackboard launches Moodle consulting division

March 31, 2012

E-learning giant Blackboard has acquired Moodlerooms and NetSpot, a pair of companies that provide support for Moodle, the leading open-source alternative to Blackboard's proprietary online learning management software (LMS) platform. Blackboard says it will not replace any of the leadership personnel at the 2 companies, nor will it try to assimilate or rebrand them, as the firm as done in prior acquisitions. Blackboard has also unveiled an "Open Service Support Group" aimed at selling support services to PSE institutions that use free, open-source LMS systems.  Presswire News Release  |  Inside Higher Ed
