Course-Management Companies Challenge MOOC Providers - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Personal [e-]Learning Environments |

Two software companies that sell course-management systems, Blackboard and Instructure, have entered the race to provide free online courses for the masses.

On Thursday both companies plan to announce partnerships with universities that will use their software to teach massive open online courses, or MOOC’s. The companies hope to pull in their own college clients to compete with online-education players like Udacity and Coursera.
