Moodle is an open source replacement for very expensive courseware solutions
like Blackboard. Both of them occupy the education market as education
In working with other education products, I found that products fall into
- an education product that happens to be delivered using innovative
- innovative technology that is tailored to the education market
The most successful products in the education market seem to be ones made by
companies that go 'all in' to education, unless there is overwhelming
dominance (often supported by a vendor that can afford to give away their
education versions, like Autodesk).
Id say at one point, HyperStudio was finely honed for the K-12 market, but I
don't think it was ever really marketed strongly enough into that market.
Much like corporate sales, selling to K-12 or to higher education you have
to sell in the way that makes it easiest for them to buy. And to make them
want to buy, you have to be at the events they attend.
