PERCEPTIS: Blackboard has acquired Perceptis, a provider of "help desk" and tech support services to over 1.4 million students, faculty and staff member. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Founded in 2004, Perceptis has supported popular online learning management systems such as Blackboard, Sakai and Moodle. According to the release, the two companies will now "support millions of campus community members at over 500 institutions, through support teams located at five operation centers nationwide."
