linkedin's acquisition of lynda.com is interesting in many sorts. while its encouraging for edtech industry for a successful exit but at the same time it brings another gorilla in the elearning industry. with only 3 edtech IPOs (2U, Chegg, K-12) in last 5 years not many companies are able to sustain against Pearson's and McGraw Hill's of the world. The big traditional education companies every year eat up (acquire) some 30-40 startups amongst them..it would be nice to see more of the tech enabled education companies trading publicly. This will bring some fresh perspective to the market.
