BBC Jam is finally dead

As predicted...

The BBC's controversial £150m digital education project will not be relaunched in any form after the troubled service was suddenly pulled last year, it emerged yesterday. BBC Jam, an ambitious curriculum online digital education aid for five- to 16-year-olds, was suspended last March by the BBC Trust in the first big ruling by the new body despite more than £75m of the budget having been spent.

So please, where did the money go? Expect to see a lot of content which was intended for Jam being sold to schools soon, but with the death of eLCs, will it be bought?
