Beyond the LMS

Blackboard was founded in 1997 by Michael Chasen and Matthew Pittinsky. They were, at first, consultants for the IMS Global Learning Consortium. They merged with CourseInfo in 1998, a course management system spun out of Cornell University, founded by Daniel Cane and Stephen Gilfus. Gilfus remains an education technology consultant. Cane has now moved on to “modernizing medicine.”
