LinkedIn Learning: Getting the most from LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning

Is it relevant to me?

There are a whole range of courses, covering a wide range of topics and practical skills, that are relevant for staff and students across the University.

The Library of content is organised by broad subjects (Business, Technology and Creative) and each subject is divided into Topics and Courses to help you navigate through and find what you need. 

Whether you are looking to enhance your presentation skills, learn audio mixing, brush up on Photoshop, or find out how to maximise Google analytics, there could be a course to suit your needs. 

Take some time to explore the LinkedIn Learning Library and see what there is for you.

What are Learning Paths?

Learning Paths are packages of courses, with video and learning materials, which take you through the stages necessary to learn something new. 

These Learning Paths are great collections of content, which can range from the quite big paths to some smaller, shorter paths, such as:

  • Become a Digital Illustrator is a 32 hour package of 9 courses
  • Become an iOS 10 App Developer has 9 courses in the path, totaling 16 hours
  • Improve Your Organizational Skills contains 4 courses, with 7 hours of learning time. 

These are worth taking a look at if you are looking at developing your skills, knowledge and expertise in a particular area.

Why use Collections?

Collections (formerly known as playlists) are a way of creating your own packages of courses. 

If you want to develop your photography skills, for example, you could create your own Photography collection.  You can then search, find and save to it, a range of courses across specific topics and skills that you want to learn.  You have then put together your own, bespoke Learning Path of content particular for your own needs.

 

Some more tips

To make sure you get the most out of LinkedIn Learning

  • make learning on LinkedIn Learning part of your study routine.
  • set goals and reward yourself for staying on track.
  • download and learn via the app to listen offline, and on the go

Course: How to use LinkedIn Learning

Advance your skills with LinkedIn Learning from How to Use LinkedIn Learning by Oliver Schinkten

Total course length is 42 minutes. Covers topics such as searching and accessing courses; navigation; adjusting speed; assessment and certificates.

 

Do I get certificates?

LinkedIn Learning Certificates of Completion are certifications you earn for the courses you have completely watched on LinkedIn Learning. Upon completion of a course, a certificate is automatically generated that can be viewed online and shared.

To see yours, just go to your profile and select certificates. These are a great way to let your social networks, co-workers, and current and potential employers see the value and diversity of your skills.

However, please note that these certificates are not recognized or endorsed by third-party authorities and as such should not be relied upon as official certification for a particular skill. They only reflect that you have completed a course on LinkedIn Learning.

You can share your certificate on LinkedIn to show the world, to show current and future employers that you are constantly learning and developing new skills.
