"Pearson, a major player in the academic books market, joins forces with Google to create a new, cost-free interactive learning environment called OpenClass. Are Blackboard’s days numbered?"
Things to consider?
They are calling it "Open Class" but how "Open" is Pearson? And what will Pearson "own" of your materials? Pearson is about to offer degrees in England. Not sure who to be more afraid of the Blackborg, the Google or the "I can teach and deliver that" company Pearson. kh
