Last year, LinkedIn bought Lynda for $1.5 billion. It's a lot of money but makes a lot of sense. It gives them an opportunity to diversify revenue streams and market content to demos that are underrepresented on their platform today (e.g. college students).

There must be some fresh blood in product over at @LinkedIn, platform's coming out with some relevance now - rather than staying on that lazy river of ubiquity. Nice.

Great positioning but is this just a re-skinning of the Lynda course base?

@evankimbrell would love to know more of your perspective and what you mean by, "re-skinning". Feel free to DM me if you feel convo is better suited there. Thanks

Think selling courses on Linkedin is pretty relevant and I can see how it fits with its audience. Cringes me out seeing the term "Thought Leader" though haha. (not just on here, Twitter etc too!)
