LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning, formerly Lynda.com, provides online courses on job-related software, technology, creative, artistic and self-developmental skills rather than academic topics. The courses are high-quality and are provided by big companies and expert instructors. The main critique of the platform is that most of the courses are at beginner level, and users have to be premium LinkedIn subscribers.

How Does it Work?

The platform offers courses tailored for three types of workplaces: government, business and higher education. The latter includes resources for professors new to teaching online. Most courses operate as MOOCs, with recorded videos, readings, quizzes, projects, a discussion forum and other resources. A non-accredited certificate is available upon finishing all course requirements. 

Costs and Financial Aid:

LinkedIn Learning is a subscription-based platform. LinkedIn users need to upgrade to a premium account ($29.99 a month or $299.88 a year, plus taxes). Other pricing options are available for teams. Some users—in Syria, for example—might not be able to subscribe if they do not have access to online payment methods. 

Ease of Use of the Platform and Visual Style:

The website is intuitive to use, works efficiently and is easy to navigate. 

Academic Disciplines and Subjects Included:

Business skills, including human resources, customer services and online marketing training; technology topics, including cloud computing, cybersecurity, data science and web development courses; creative topics, like online graphic design and art training; and certification preparation programs.
