“LinkedIn has formalized the blending of Lynda.com courses and its own professional data and networking services with the launch of LinkedIn Learning. This new site provides access to “thousands” of video courses in an on-demand format that can be viewed on mobile devices; it includes transcripts and closed captions and offers administrative tools for tracking user analytics. A major area of emphasis will be education environments, including K-12 and higher education.
LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com in spring 2015. LinkedIn itself will soon become part of Microsoft. That acquisition was announced in summer 2016 and is expected to be finalized by the end of this year.”
