My university recently began the process of migrating to Desire2Learn from Moodle. This transition was greeted by a fair number of complaints from faculty members since we had just made the transition from WebCT (purchased by Blackboard) to Moodle only 2 years ago, and this had been a very lengthy and painful process. So, since course management systems have been a hot topic at school, I have spent some time over the last few years following the various stories that have popped up in the news about Blackboard and its numerous lawsuits against other CMS companies (including Desire2Learn) and even the US Patent and Trademark Office. Now, Desire2Learn has filed a lawsuit of its own over its failure to win a contract in Utah. It is amazing how much time and effort these companies spend in litigation……..time and effort that might be better spent in improving their product.
