Founder of Lynda.com Talks About Future of Learning Online (Video) - Kara Swisher - Media To Lynda Weinman, it’s funny that the online learning site she and her husband founded in 1995 suddenly seems like an overnight success. “Yes, only two decades in the making,” she joked at a lunch I had with her last week. But there certainly has been a big buzz around Lynda.com — named after Weinman — after the Carpinteria, Calif., company raised $103 million a month ago in its first major funding. And, last week, as part of a major expansion globally using that money, it bought Austria-based video2brain to add to its online course offerings in a range of computer and other skills, in a number of European languages. It’s all part of the plan to dominate the continuing education market, and to bring 60 more employees and a pile of lessons to a service that competes with a range of others, such as Codecademy and Treehouse in the business and computer learning space. Currently, Lynda has 83,000 videos in 1,500 courses, and close to 500 employees.

Should 'real' students do an online course on the side? Universities have started giving away their content free as "massive open online courses", with the satisfyingly ridiculous acronym mooc (I challenge you to say it three times with a straight face). Eleven top UK universities recently announced they were joining the Open University to launch FutureLearn, in a bid to catch up with the elite US institutions that have led the way in teaching huge numbers online. It all sounds great for people who, for one reason or another, can't go to a traditional university. But do moocs have anything to offer students already studying at a bricks-and-mortar institution? People like me, who hate the niggling feeling that they might be missing out on a bargain? Well, I've signed up for a mooc in microeconomics.
