Lore? not affiliated with the UO
Many faculty have received emails from Lore with the UO logo claiming to be a blackboard alternative. Their predecessor was “coursekit”, and this company has a reputation for aggressive advertising and has hired many students from enrolled institutions to do marketing on their behalf.
We’ve evaluated the product (along with various other course management systems), and will continue to look at it, but for now we see a number of issues that could limit widespread adoption at the UO. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
