Feb. 8, 2013
This week's most popular Education Dive reads were all about learning management systems, MOOCs and big decisions by universities. (Granted, The Ohio State University's logo change may not look so big at first glance.)
If you felt like you were out of the loop this week, now if the time to catch up on the news posts that everyone else was looking at. Here's what you might have missed:
- 12 learning management system providers and what they bring to classrooms: The LMS market's leaders maintain a strong hold, but new names continue to add diversify to the field.
- Yale, UPenn sued former students over loans: Former students defaulted on nearly $1 billion in loans and several schools have been heading to court to get their money back.
- Ohio State University picks new identifying logo: In an effort to create a single look for the Ohio State brand, the university has retouched its seals and logos.
