Desire2Learn joins Blackboard and Instructure in the MOOCs market

Another course-management company enters the market for MOOCs.

Desire2Learn unveiled a MOOC-enabled version of its online-learning platform, joining two competitors, Blackboard and Instructure (Canvas).

Desire2Learn Open Courses integrates online assets commonly used for classroom instruction and the MOOC system, preventing students and faculty members from having to log into different accounts. It allows professors and institutions to import content from the existing Desire2Learn platform, create their own MOOCs, and maintain copyrights on their own materials.
