One of the best online learning platforms for professionals

I enjoy using several of these online learning platforms including Skillshare, Lynda, and Udemy, but have always been disappointed with their free features. LinkedIn Learning offers a wide variety of options at no cost to the user. This makes this platform stand apart from the rest of the pack.

Pros

I like the wide variety of topics covered in the videos, and the sheer quantity of content is staggering. The free version of the app also offers a plethora of features, and anybody can learn many different skills using this platform.

Cons

My least favorite thing about the app is the lack of interactive features associated with each video. The content is predominantly just videos, and lacks the fully immersive classroom features that comes with platforms like skillshare.

Upscaling Our Professional Development

We are now able to use one system to support all employee development needs except those requiring medical-related skills training. Our support reps have been actively engaged, scheduling regular meetings, creating usage reports, and providing engagement resources.Our training team is able to refer leaders to LIL to utilize resources that support their specific developmental needs within their teams - both soft and hard skills. We average about 44% engagement rate, which we’ve been told is typical for our organization size.

Pros

LinkedIn Learning offers something for everyone in our organization. That was ultimately why we chose it over other platforms. We also love the short learning clips which make it extremely user-friendly!

Cons

While the search features are great, sometimes there are still a lot of options to wade through to find exactly what you need. Employees also have clear preferences for more engaging instructors. Many instructors focus on philosophical presentations rather than practical applications. Practical engagement is a clear win for our employees.

It can be useful for some aspects but it feels like its missing quite a lot too

It is ok for the price of subscription and from time to time it is worth to check as some of the training is really good quality but it does feel like it is missing a lots of good training.

Pros

The videos and the way they are organised is easy to digest (short sections). It is good to have the test of knowledge at the end of the chapter. There are some interesting subjects and useful learning.

Cons

Mostly focused on the US, for example with HR training some things do not apply. It feels like it is missing some key training like how to recruit, use metrics, KPI, different job boards or even Linkedin. It can be my poor way of searching but I used different key words and checked some that came up and there were just mostly 1-5 minutes parts in some other training that briefly mentioned the subject I was looking for about the recruitment, KPI's in recruitment etc.

A learning platform focused on.... learning!

Overall it is my main source of learning. I couldn't think my career life without this platform at the moment.

Pros

Linkedin Learning is all about learning: no useless functionalities, all your classes and interesting courses at a glance. Nothing fancy but a lot of available contents, usually high quality.

Cons

Sometimes video streaming doesn't work smoothly as expected. Price can be challenging for small businesses. Unexperienced users could stumble upon courses which could be a bit old (I am talking about software development courses, where a course made in 2019 can already be considered old...)

LinkedIn Learning mostly delivered on promise

We don’t use LinkedIn Learning as a LMS. Instead, we have an existing LMS and use LinkedIn Learning specifically for content. It’s weird but it works really well, and we couldn’t be happier with our current set-up.

Pros

The sheer quality and quantity of courses is astounding. Also, the breadth of topics is impressive, and continues to grow. LinkedIn Learning really is the premier place for professional microlearnings.

Cons

The courses all have the same feel, no matter how distinct the subject matter. Specifically, the way the speakers behave and background all feel too similar. I’m sure it’s on purpose, but I think a little more visual variety would be a good thing.
