Slashdot | All 44 Blackboard Patent Claims Invalidated has a lot of links talking about Bb’s patent fights. I’m too tired to look up the stuff in the past, but Bb seemed to be trying to patent everything having to do with online learning, as if they had invented it. I’ll have to dig later, but I’m happy that things are moving forward. I have no professional opinion on blackboard or it’s claims, but I’ve personally not ever seen anything in blackboard that I’d not seen in other environments. I look forward to seeing how it is resolved.
