This Month in Ed Tech History

October 1978 - The Learning Campany incorporated. The Learning Company (TLC), an American educational software company, was incorporated in California in October 1978 as Micropro International Corp. TLC is best known for its line of educational children's software, most notably the Reader Rabbit series of learning. In 1991, Reader Rabbit 1won Technology & Learning Magazine's Language Arts Program of the Decade and the following year Reader Rabbit 2 won a Parents' Choice Foundation Award, the Software Publishers Association's Award for Best Elementary Education Product, and Technology & Learning Magazine's Award of Excellence. In 1995 a "bidding war" took place between Brøderbund and SoftKey, with the latter eventually acquiring TLC for $606 million in cash. SoftKey took up The Learning Company's name with the acquisition. Mattel purchased the company in 1999 for $3.8 billion, renaming it "Mattel Interactive". TLC, along with Brøderbund, is now a subsidiarie of Riverdeep. As of December 17, 2008, TLC closed their online store, leaving their products to be found at retail stores and other online distributors.
