Dear Commons Community,
Here is an audio interview conducted by the Chronicle of Higher Education with Charles Severance, an assistant professor at the University of Michigan, who helped start Sakai, the open-source alternative to Blackboard’s course-management software. Blackboard hired Mr. Severance this Spring as a consultant to lead its bid to support the open-source software. He talks about Blackboard, Sakai and the future of open source in higher education. Lots of food for thought for those of us who question Blackboard’s monopolistic tendencies and who want to move beyond Blackboard for our online teaching.
