LinkedIn acquires

Last week, LinkedIn spent $1.5 billion in a combined cash (52%) and stock (48%) deal to acquire popular online learning company According to industry observers, the purchase represents an important strategic move for LinkedIn’s business – from being a professional social network and recruitment service, the company can now include instructional content and e-learning among its offerings. In short, it’s quite possible that jobseekers on LinkedIn will soon be offered relevant courses to help them acquire certain skills required for a job. Could this be the first of LinkedIn’s moves into the corporate training industry which is valued at over $130 billion worldwide?
