Today we learned that Oklahoma City based multimedia training company Digital Tutors has been acquired by Utah based PluralSight for $45 million. This acquisition is the latest in a string of purchases made by PluralSight to expand its training program.
According to the TechCrunch report on the acquisition:
With the Digital-Tutors purchase, PluralSight adds a suite of 1,500 courses focused on media and design to its already formidable array of online training tools for professional developers. The company now boasts over 3,000 training modules in its catalog.
It’s the latest shot in the battle for dominance in the market for software training content – a sector that is increasingly consolidating around larger, better-funded companies.
Along with the acquisition, Digital-Tutors chief executive and founder Piyush Patel will join PluralSight as senior vice president of creative operations.
This is great news for Digital Tutors as they have created a wonderful product and this will allow them to continue doing so for many long years to come.
