eCN This Week

In this week’s news: Lou Pugliese, CEO of Moodlerooms, said Blackboard’s purchase of his company and another firm that hosts and supports the Moodle open-source learning management system should be welcome news to educators who advocate for open-source software, because it means an open platform finally has the financial backing of a large company. But others aren't so sure, and they fear the moves—which sent shockwaves throughout the open-source community—raise significant questions for the future of Moodle.
Also, colleges are tapping technology to help prevent burnout among nursing students; experts say that online college loan applications are adding to students’ confusion about their debt, although where the fault lies is up for debate; and students next year will have to submit photos of themselves when they sign up for the SAT or ACT, under a host of new security measures that come after a major cheating scandal on Long Island.
What do you think of these developments? Share your thoughts in the comments section of the stories, or send them to me by eMail—we’re eager to hear from you.
