Pluralsight To Focus On Enterprise

According to a Research and Markets report, the global education technology market is estimated to grow 15% annually during the period 2018 to 2024. The growth is expected to be driven by academic institutions who are providing off-campus licenses for software, repositories for courses and study materials, and online course catalogs. Cedar Valley, Utah-based EdTech company and Billion Dollar Unicorn Pluralsight (Nasdaq: PS) recently reported its fourth quarter results that surpassed market expectations.
