About LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is an online learning platform offering video courses taught by industry experts. It is easy to use, accessible 24/7 from any device, and features short programs organized in chapters, typically no longer than 10 minutes. LinkedIn Learning offers mobile apps for iOS and Android phones and tablets. 

LinkedIn Learning Review

LinkedIn Learning, formerly known as Lynda.com, is an online learning platform with on-demand, video-based content. The platform offers more than 16,000 courses, 9,000 of which are in English. Each is broken down into multiple short videos with specific learning goals.

If you needed to learn business skills, everything from management training to entrepreneurship or coding skills, Linkedin Learning could teach you. LinkedIn has launched a new app called LinkedIn Learning, an ambitious e-learning portal tailored to individuals, but also catering to businesses looking to keep training their employees, and beyond that even educational institutions exploring e-learning courses. 

Subjects taught through the service include business, technology and creative topics, with courses running the gamut from programming skills to writing and accounting. Courses can be both selected by employees as well as recommended by employers and their HR managers who can use LinkedIn’s analytics products to both monitor employees progress but also look at the wider range of what is being studied as a point of reference, and curators at LinkedIn itself.

LinkedIn education is available for LinkedIn Premium subscribers who look like they will get 25 new courses every week based on information on the site.

LinkedIn’s emphasis on education and learning goes hand-in-hand with the company’s primary role today as a place where many people go to create and maintain their professional profiles publicly, and to look for jobs. Building on that as a place to also enhance your professional skills makes a lot of sense.

There are other sources of online learning that cost less than LinkedIn Premium, although what they offer varies. Which one is best depends on what you want to learn, and Educational App Store has three Editors' Choices. First, Khan Academy (free) is best at teaching academics. MasterClass is best if you want inspirational talks and specific advice from people at the top of their field about their field.
