New Mexico chooses Blackboard for K-20 elearning solution
New Mexico chose Blackboard for its K-20+ elearning solution. All public institutions of learning will use Blackboard. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. There are advantages and disadvantages to standardizing on a single learning management system. Training should be simplified. However, I find most LMS software to be intuitive. Will K-12 teachers be required to post content on Blackboard? New Mexico probably received a pretty good price break. Could they save more money by using their budget to customize an open source LMS like Moodle? There’s a lot of talk now about next generation LMS. What if Blackboard’s Project NG flops? Stay tuned.
