LinkedIn has bought online education platform Lynda for $1.5 billion.
The business focused social network is planning to expand content for its 300 million users.
The purchase is LinkedIn's largest to-date.
Lynda is an online education platform in which subscribers pay $375 a year to access video tutorials on a variety of skills and topics.
"The mission of LinkedIn and the mission of lynda.com are highly aligned," said LinkedIn chief executive Jeff Weiner in a statement.
"Both companies seek to help professionals be better at what they do."
