LinkedIn Learning offers its courses in video format, and you can narrow down your ideal courses in a few different ways. For example, you can choose to learn by subject, software, or pursue a Learning Path.
Learning Paths are sets of courses around a certain topic that can take you from zero knowledge to an expert upon completion. You can find paths on subjects like how to become a software developer and more.
Likes: LinkedIn Learning is a great alternative to classroom courses. You can learn at your own convenience at home, in the office or while on the go on your smartphone.
The courses are created by professionals, hence, they are practical and interesting. Studying the courses immensely helped me bridge the skill gap in my profession. Not only was I more confident but also skilled and competent in my work.
Dislikes: LinkedIn Learning is amazing, but it can be overwhelming since there are so many incredible courses on the platform.
This can lead to the shiny eye syndrome of wanting to learn everything new and that is impossible. Furthermore, the courses are not accredited by professional accreditation boards.
LinkedIn Learning offers personalized course recommendations based on your skills and interests, giving you a filtered selection of courses to suit your needs.
Once you complete a course, you will receive a certificate of completion which you can share via your LinkedIn Profile. If recognition of completing a course is what you are looking for, then you are considering the right platform.
