EDBRIEF: Education Search Engine Noodle acquires AllClasses

New York-based education search engine Noodle acquired Boston-based AllClasses. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, VentureBeat reports that it is an all-equity deal.

AllClasses was founded in 2013 and raised a $1.5 million Seed Round in May 2014.

Founded in 2010 by John Katzman, who is also the founder of The Princeton Review and 2U (formerly 2tor), Noodle collects information about online and offline courses from the web and curates them on its web portal.

With the acquisition of AllClasses, Noodle adds nearly 100.000 courses from 20.000 providers to its database, expanding its post-college search capabilities. Earlier this month Noodle added search capabilities for pre-schools to its offering.

The acquisition of AllClasses is the second in Noodle’s history. In March 2013 Noodle acquired Lore (formerly CourseKit) to integrate its technology into the search engine.
