Press Release – Blackboard Unveils Blackboard Beyond Initiative – Blackboard (Via Stephen’s Web ~ by Stephen Downes ~ OLDaily RSS 2.0.) Stephen Downes:
Well I guess it’s official now – Blackboard has embraced e-learning 2.0. Proposals include “personalizing the e-Learning environment,” facilitation of social networking, “Network Learning Environments,” and workplace learning. It’s pretty clear that I think they are moving in the right direction with this. But it would have been nice to see the support available (for we certainly have the knowledge) to develop this in Canada.
With any luck, the open source course management system, Moodle, which already generates RSS 2.O feeds if I am not mistaken, will keep up (or lead the way), and we won’t have to pay a large fee for these features.
