LinkedIn Learning combines all of Lynda.com’s high-quality courses with insights from LinkedIn data to provide you with personalized course recommendations based on your current job and skills, and what professionals like you are learning.
You still have access to world-class Lynda.com content, including 11,000+ digital courses taught by industry experts. LinkedIn Leraning also includes special insights and social engagement from LinkedIn. Popular topics include data science, software development, creative software, leadership, and management.
A new user interface should help you find more relevant content related to areas where you want to grow in your knowledge and skill-sets. If you choose to connect your account to your LinkedIn profile, you will also be able to share your progress with others. These changes should help you on your career journey.
Finally, LinkedIn Learning is delivered where you are, whether that’s on the Hilltop or on the go, with the option to view content both on and offline on any device. Your learning data has been transferred automatically so you are able to hit the ground running, no matter where and when you like to learn!
