The Apollo Education Group has introduced a new website that plans to assist people with finding courses that teach skills needed to get jobs in the technology industry.  The company is a the parent company of the University of Phoenix, and their newest venture, called Ballon, is designed to help companies recruit skilled workers.
 
The website will provide employers with an opportunity to post actual job listings.  Once a search is done on a specific job, the search can then provide a listing of courses from nonuniversities, like Udacity, Coursera, edX, etc., that are relevant to the skills listed in the job posting.
