Today one of the largest providers of course-management software for colleges and schools, Blackboard, announced that it plans to merge with Anthology, a company formed last year from the combination of three other edtech companies.
The move creates a giant company that will reportedly be valued at about $3 billion, though officials did not disclose the terms of the deal.
When it formed last year, Anthology represented the marriage of three sizable companies that all operated in distinct areas of edtech: Campus Management, which offers a student information system; Campus Labs, which offers software for students and campus leaders to manage clubs, events and other student-affair activities; and iModules, which develops alumni engagement software to help colleges fundraise.
