Sean Fitzgerald alert through Twitter:

Blackboard wins in patent fight against Desire2Learn.

I loath the use of Learning Management Systems generally, but I triple loath an over priced, crappy, monopolising, proprietary LMS like Blackboard.

Boycott Blackboard

If your institution uses Blackboard, do your teaching and students a favor and learn how to teach and learn without it!

Die LMS die is even more true now that Blackboard owns the concept of LMS.
