What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning is an online resource to help you take your skills to the next level.
It offers a library of over 14,000 videos, courses, and learning paths on a range of skills-based subjects. Courses are taught by real-world industry experts and cover thousands of topics in “Business”, “Creative”, and “Technology” categories.
LinkedIn Learning usually requires a paid subscription to access courses. But VPI program participants are eligible for free access. For more information on accessing LinkedIn Learning through VPI, contact us today.
Who is LinkedIn Learning for?
LinkedIn Learning offers courses for any skill level. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or advanced learner, there are courses for you.
LinkedIn Learning is built to fit you. You can customize your experience to fit your needs.
If you don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to a course, you can complete it in small sections at your own pace. You can access LinkedIn Learning anywhere there’s an internet connection, or even download courses to view offline with the mobile app.
Whatever your learning style, there are resources to help you learn.
If you learn better by reading, there are transcripts of most videos so you can follow along or move at your own pace. If repetition helps you better understand or retain what you’ve learned, you can jump to relevant sections or rewatch entire videos. If you’re more of a tactile learner, many courses have downloadable files that you can use to extend your learning experience beyond the computer screen. If interaction is more your style, there are Q&A sections on many courses where you can share information with other learners.
With LinkedIn Learning you can create goals, track your progress, save courses for later, create collections, and view recommendations for courses that fit your interests and goals.
How can LinkedIn Learning help with your job search?
If you’re looking for help with the “search” part of your job search, LinkedIn Learning offers hundreds of videos to help you with subjects including resume writing, job interviews, and even building self-confidence.
If you want to take your job search to the next level, LinkedIn Learning has courses designed to teach you new skills and develop the skills you already have.
For example, if you’re a graphic designer and you would like to learn more about animation, there are courses to help. If you’d like to move up to a management position, there are hundreds of courses on effective management techniques. If you’re thinking of learning to code, you can choose from a large selection of courses on dozens of different programming languages such as Python, Java and Java Script.
LinkedIn Learning can also help you develop skills that aren’t directly related to your career but might be of interest. From managing your personal finances to learning to play the guitar, LinkedIn Learning has courses to help you improve almost every part of your life.
LinkedIn Learning includes certificates of completion that you can add to your resume to show employers that you are knowledgeable in that subject.
