Sun Microsystems is looking to extend its training services with the acquisition of e-learning software developer, Isopia. The cash and stock deal will give Sun access to the Isopia’s integrated learning management system.

With online learning thriving, the Java-based software package would enable Sun to tap into an additional learning market.

Isopia will be integrated into Sun Educational Services, and plans to keep on Isopia’s 200 or so employees.

“This is great for Sun’s overall strategy to increase web usage and expand ino e-learning services options,” Brandon Hall a researcher at Brandon-hall.com, InformationWeek.com. “The acquisition now puts them in comparable position with IBM Mindspan systems.”
