This morning Kitchener's Desire2Learn formally announced the acquisition of Waterloo's Metranome and the availability of the Desire2Learn Mobile Developer Program.

Metranome's mobile media platform serves international clients in the media, publishing, entertainment, and travel industries. Smartphone applications built on Metranome's platform have been featured by Apple, Google, and RIM and made available worldwide on iOS, Android, and BlackBerry smartphones.

Metranome’s employees have joined Desire2Learn’s mobile team including co-founders Dave Kruis and Craig Dunk, former Research In Motion employees who started Metranome in 2007.

Over the past six months, Metranome's technology, leadership, and vision have been integrated into the Desire2Learn platform and are now part of the Desire2Learn suite of solutions serving all market sectors. Desire2Learn Campus Life, launched in March of this year, was built on the Metranome platform and is one of several mobile solutions available.

The Mobile Developer Program will enable third-party developers to build their own functionality and incorporate that functionality into applications built with Desire2Learn Campus Life.
