Aptly called LinkedIn Learning, the platform houses contents from Lynda.com, an online education company, and LinkedIn’s professional data and network.
Through artificial intelligence and personalized recommendations, learners are able to discover the courses (there are over 9,000 digital courses with more added from time to time) that are most relevant to their goals or job function.
Upon discovering the courses, they can learn at their own pace and with ease. The courses, broken into bite-sized segments, can be viewed anytime, on any device, online and off.
The courses, some of which are taught German, Spanish, Japanese and French, enable learners get leading-edge skills to stay current and relevant.
Some companies – Bertelsmann, Box, Ellie Mae, NBCUniversal and Viacom – with thousands of learners have tested LinkedIn Learning in a pilot, and have attested of its usefulness and efficacy.
“It provides great content and recommendations, all through a great user experience,” said Terence Morley, NBCUniversal director of talent development.
He added, “People wouldn’t be coming back unless the content and recommendations were good.”
LinkedIn Learning is targeted at both individuals and organizations, and aims to help them discover and develop the skills they need through a personalized, data-driven learning experience.
