Blackboard tries and fails to get a clue

Blackboard, the horrendous courseware behemoth, has heard about this Web 2.0 stuff and decided the right response is to clone del.icio.us -- as a closed system inside Blackboard!

 

I love the bit about how "limiting access to Blackboard users" is supposed to contribute to the goal of "a new way to find educationally valuable resources".

 

If only they'd put a little effort into opening Blackboard up, for starters by supporting e-mail and RSS subscriptions so students wouldn't have to log into Bb's nasty multi-click frames interface to keep up with their classes.
