Seattle-based CreativeLive offers more than 2,000 classes on subjects spanning design, business, visual arts and marketing from instructors including winners of Pulitzer Prizes, Oscars and Grammys. Under the terms of the deal, CreativeLive will remain a standalone company. Financials were not disclosed.

Fiverr founder and CEO Micha Kaufman said the deal demonstrates Fiverr is more than just a work platform and part of a broader strategy to move into other areas related to networking and career progression.

“We fundamentally believe in supporting the entire freelance lifestyle, and that includes professional education and training,” Kaufman said in a statement.
