More about LinkedIn Learning
LinkedIn learning comes from top professional networking website LinkedIn. Formerly, the website went by the name Lynda.com, it was acquired by LinkedIn in 2017 and recently renamed it as LinkedIn Learning.
The courses on the platform are divided in to three main categories and they are:
Business category hosts courses on subjects like: Leadership and Management, Professional Development, Human Resources, Finance, Customer Service, Marketing – View all
Creative Category has courses on topics like: Web Designing, Photography, Motion Graphics, UI, AEC, Audio & Music, Animation etc
Technology Category hosts courses on subjects like: Cloud computing, Computer Networking, Data Science, DBMS, Web Development, Software Development, Programming, IT etc
Each LinkedIn course comes with a certification of completion. And I personally believe, this certificate is going to have a great value on your resume.
Instructors on the platform
The instructors on LinkedIn learning are the experienced professionals already working with top notch organizations. The experience they bring into their teaching is extremely beneficial for learners.
Each instructor on the platform has a professional LinkedIn profile which students can audit before taking the course. Isn’t it great?
Are LinkedIn Learning Courses Affordable?
The courses on the website are affordable for sure. The best part, you get a free month to start learning, grab it here. If you have a LinkedIn Premium or above membership, you get LinkedIn learning for free with unlimited access to all the training courses.
If you are not interested to go for the subscription, you can buy courses individually as well.
One of the courses I saw a few days back was available under $40. Which is not that costly considering the subject and the experience of the instructor.
LinkedIn Learning is a great medium to gain new skills online. The courses offered, price and the value of the certificate definitely make me recommend them to learners. Therefore, do go ahead and check them out.
