Blackboard buys Moodlerooms – inconceivable!

moodle rooms logoIn a stunning announcement, Blackboard has purchased two of Moodle’s primary partners (both for-profit companies who shared their profits for the continued development of the free, open source Learning Management System (LMS) known as Moodle.)  Apparently, Moodle’s founder is ok with it, as shared in this post in Wired Campus from the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Have there been a polar shift?  Is there a  disturbance in the force?  Apparently not.  Blackboard announced this along with their new Open Source Services Group – hosting and consulting services to go along with using Moodle.
