Blackboard takes over Angel - the battle for delivering the learning.

Inside Higher Ed reports that Blackboard  is taking over Angel . These are two major platforms for the delivery of online learning at university (and school) level.
Blackboard does not get good press. Angel did. Some universities were/are changing from Blackboard to Angel - hence great grumblings.
California State University at Long Beach were reported to be dismayed by the news - they were adopting Angel after deciding to drop Blackboard. I found it interesting that Moodle was in second place as their choice of course management platform.
There is another open-source alternative to Moodle - Sakai . Will be looking into that....
