This is good news. Former ANGELista and current Blackboard Learn President Ray Henderson has started a blog, where he says he will respond to conversations in the blogosphere and generally try to make Blackboard more transparent. He has also turned blog comments on, which he acknowledges is a small deal in the wider world but a non-trivial deal for a corporate blog. (This is true.) Maybe he’ll respond to my post on three tests for the”new” Blackboard.
In marginally related news (under the heading of “openness”), I learned from Blackboard folks on Twitter that Blackboard’s API documentation is available without requiring a contract or login at their EduGarage site. FWIW.
