Noodle Acquires to Bolster Education Search Engine

MORE CLASSES: In an all-stock deal, New York-based Noodle has acquired Boston-based Allclasses, a search engine for both online and local classes. Started in 2010 by John Katzman, who previously founded The Princeton Review and 2U, Noodle offers search tools that allow parents to find and read reviews of schools, academic programs and tutoring resources.

As Katzman explained to VentureBeat, Allclasses’ collection of over 100,000 class providers and its strong tech-team make it an attractive addition for a search-powered education resource like Noodle. Notably, not all of Allclasses course offerings are academic; users can find classes on anything from yoga to applied mathematics. Allclasses raised $1.5 million in seed funding slightly over a year ago.
