According to a post on the LinkedIn Learning blog, a new platform has been launched by LinkedIn for organizations to post learning content. Once learning content is published or linked from an outside public source to the LinkedIn database, it will immediately be searchable by LinkedIn members.
Reporting features and the ability for organizations to create structured learning paths for those who are assigned courses are included; more features and enhancements will be announced.
Each week, LinkedIn Learning adds to its 9,000-plus course library. This past week 34 new courses were added, covering everything from ethical hacking to social selling.
Some new courses now available at LinkedIn Learning are:
- Hiring and Developing Your Future Workforce
- Efficient Email Management with Outlook 2016 for Mac
- Customizing Macs for Accessibility and Ease of Use
LinkedIn purchased Lynda.com last year to provide a more complete professional development and networking platform for users. The introduction of LinkedIn Learning is the next logical step for the company, allowing organizations to post custom course content from a wide variety of sources and providing on-demand training modules to employees, which can be used to direct long term career paths with structured programs.
