What's Inside

LinkedIn Learning Review

LinkedIn Learning has a strong backbone of content from Lynda, one of the first online businesses from back in the 1990s that had several decades to assemble content around all types of business knowledge from soft to hard skills. With LinkedIn Learning, employees can get training on three main areas, business, creative, and technology. Together, these categories can display topics on anything from SCRUM and Excel to photography and non-verbal language for leaders.

  • Certifications: Some courses may offer a certification. These, naturally, can be added straight to your LinkedIn profile.

LinkedIn Learning Implementation

Setting LinkedIn Learning for a company would depend on the scope of the project, which is why the best bet is to get in touch with their team. For individuals, it's as easy as signing up and choosing a course to start with.

With LinkedIn Learning, you can buy individual courses or subscribe to the whole catalogue as you would do for a streaming service. The latter option is priced for a single account, and starts at $29,99 per month if you pay monthly, or $19,99 if you pay for the whole year. If you'd like to purchase the service for a team, they offer custom pricing.
