In case you haven't heard the news yet, Blackboard has hired a new CEO---Jay Bhatt, previously the CEO of Progress Software. According to Mr. Chasen's "open letter to the education community," he will be participating in the transition for the next few months. No word yet on what he will do after that. Ray Henderson has an interesting reflection blog post up about the transition.
I'm sure we'll have more coverage of this event here on e-Literate in the coming days and weeks as we learn more and have time to think about what it means.
