And most people would put Lynda.com at the top of their list of companies that have found a way to make online education both rewarding and profitable.
Eric Robison became Lynda.com’s CEO in 2008 and joins us today to discuss what Lynda.com’s success might mean for MOOCs and other forms of technology-driven learning.
