ABSTRACT
Troubled training giant KnowledgePool has been bought from Fujitsu Services by Canadian e-learning firm TomaNet for an undisclosed amount. And Paul Butler has stepped down as chief executive of KnowledgePool to remain at Fujitsu. The deal follows months of speculation that Fujitsu wanted to sell the training provider and is crucial to TomaNet's plans to transform itself into a major league e-learning firm. The purchase will see radical changes to KnowledgePool's e-learning development team, the bulk of which will be moved to Canada.
