“Access to Online Learning!”

I heard about LinkedIn Learning on LinkedIn because I am a student using LinkedIn to network professionally.

I work at NBC Universal and I heard about LinkedIn Learning because my department is offering free courses on the website. The first certificate I received was the 12 Principles of Animation.

I received it in 2021 because I was interested in the free course. I have two undergraduate degrees in design, and I don’t want to give up on learning. LinkedIn Learning is a great and fast way to learn new skills that will be helpful to the profession. NBC Universal offers more free LinkedIn Learning certificate courses and I hope to develop more skills along the way.

LinkedIn Learning doesn’t have many issues. I have taken classes on edX and Coursera but I had to receive financial assistance by writing about my situation whereas on LinkedIn Learning,

I didn’t have to pay for anything since I took the course while as an employee at NBC Universal.

“Well Established tool for Professional Learning”

It contains subjects from all fields. Whether you are from any area, you will find content for your requirements. You can learn content anytime, anywhere. Features like resume from last played the video, saving part, taking more features I like the most. We can also download the videos offline in our device, so if somtime internet is not available then we can use this downladed videos.

If someone wants to learn any technology, and social skills, presentation skills, or anything related to the professional world, then they should visit LinkedIn learning. I recommend all the people to use this once.

Overall Satisfaction with LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

I use LinkedIn Learning to keep up with current trends, training practices, and also new fields of study. I use LIL in understanding the current career fields and also relating to others in different fields. It addresses for me what hurdles people go through to be and remain top in their field and relate to theirs in that field.

It does an excellent job in relating to their audience and transferring and relating information they give in each course.

It always has a variety of new and relevant courses to improve your career skill set and marketability to new and possible clients and employers.

LinkedIn Learning is an online education or learning platform featuring online high-quality videos from industry experts. They hosts online tutorials about a range of subjects including digital marketing, design and business.

Everything on this e-learning platform is video-oriented, so there’s no text to learn or memorize. While LinkedIn Learning is connected to the LinkedIn social network, you don’t need one to use the other.

Currently, the platform offers more than 16,000 different courses available in seven different languages, and more courses are added all the time. They are all subscription based, which means you have to pay to view them except for preview snippets.

However, everything is on equal footing, so you don’t have to pay more for higher tiers of videos: A single fee gives you access to everything. The LinkedIn Learning videos may be learning-oriented and often structured as lectures or classes, but they aren’t classes in the traditional sense.

“Lynda.com review for real estate professional”

I like the ease of access through my linkedin account. However, I find that that is all I really like about the program.

There isn’t a lot of variety for my line of work. I find that the classes don’t really teach me anything I didn’t already know. I think they should increase the difficulty of the classes and make it worth while to sit through the videos. I find that I feel like I wasted time learning absolutely nothing. Bummed.

I recommend more in-depth classes and coursework. really challenge people to get them into using the programs on a daily basis. Make classes worthwhile, offer certifications.

“LinkedIn learning is a nice product if you have the patience and time”

Intuitive and informative. It shows skill sets that I may have not thought of but are included because of another skill set that is linked to you LinkedIn profile

Can be frustrating and time consuming. The app works but sometimes you go through tutorials and then it doesn’t show up that you have taken that course when you log back in
