This was mentioned in Free Culture News a while ago, but it’s worth mentioning here because it applies specifically to Virginia Tech.
Virginia Tech, after years of using the proprietary Blackboard software, is now working on their own implementation of Sakai called Scholar. Scholar right now is accessible to anyone with a Virginia Tech PID, and hopefully will be set to completely replace Blackboard in the future.
Thanks to kiran for bringing this up.
