LinkedIn Learning: Goal setting

LinkedIn Learning

Setting and Managing Weekly Goals

LinkedIn Learning allows learners to set weekly learning goals for themselves. Setting these goals will help you:

  • Prioritize your learning needs by blocking a specific amount of time in your schedule for watching the course videos.
  • Track your progress on LinkedIn Learning.

Learners who set learning goals will receive reminders to complete watching courses that they have in progress. Learners can set goals for their saved and in progress courses. Every minute you spend watching content on LinkedIn Learning will count towards your weekly goal. You will be able to track your progress via the progress bar on your home page.
