eLearning one of the fasting growing industries

Interesting analysis of LinkedIn data but I'm curious about the terminology. One of the challenges we have in education is the constant evolution of terms used to desribed ed tech - elearning, digital learning, educational technology, social learning, etc. However, it seems clear that no matter how you parce the names, there is a huge surge in digital learning technologies fueled by a growing interest from investors. Great news for the industry.
