The big acquisition news of the day

For me, the big acquisition news of today wasn’t the surprise announcement that Microsoft is buying LinkedIn. No, for me, the far more interesting story was one I’ve been involved with: the City & Guilds group acquiring Digitalme and Makewaves to create a new digital credentialing business based on Open Badges.

Check out the announcement from Digitalme, and you can read the official City & Guilds update here.

Update: There’s also a post here from Chris Kirk, who will head-up the new digital credentialing business within the City & Guilds group.
