The network for working professionals, LinkedIn, has announced its new learning portal, LinkedIn Learning. The social network acquired Lynda.com, which has over 9,000 coursese online, for $1.5 billion a year and a half ago. Microsoft is in the process of acquiring LInkedIn for $26.2 billion. Personal disclosure – I nave competed dozens of courses at Lynda.com.

I read the abstract and scanned this interesting article. I’ll read it when I have time.
