TakeLessons Launches On Google Helpouts
San Diego-based online lesson marketplace TakeLessons said yesterday that it will offer up its tutors, music teachers, and performing art instructors via the new service, Google Helpouts, which launched Tuesday. According to TakeLessons, it will provide access to experts from its site via Helpouts by Google, which is Google's new service for finding experts that users can consult with via live video. Google's new service--much like TakeLessons--lets users book on-demand video sessions or set up a scheduled time to talk to experts across a wide range of areas. Google has tapped a number of partners for sourcing those experts. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
