Blackboard’s chairman, Matthew Pittinsky, was interviewed this
past Friday by
The Innovation Insider, a blog on
business innovation from Fortune Magazine. Part of
what Matthew’s talking about is inspired by the upcoming keynote by Malcolm Gladwell at BbWorld ’06:

"We’ve seen
widespread adoption of software by colleges and universities that want the Web
to play a major role in campus-based and distance learning programs (breadth),
and we’ve seen great traction on campus by faculty in terms of the percentage of
courses that use eLearning systems to supplement or deliver instruction (depth).
Now, the focus is on going beyond putting courses online through a standardized
system. It’s about personalizing the course environment to be discipline and
pedagogically specific to the subject in question."

more of Matthew’s thoughts.
