LinkedIn Learning, formerly known as Lynda.com, is an easy way to improve and develop your skills on a variety of in-demand topics. These video-based courses are led by industry experts in their field. You can learn a new skill like 3D design or even refresh your skills in an area you’re familiar with like Microsoft Word.
While LinkedIn Learning offers courses, it also offers standalone videos. For example, maybe you just need a refresher on how to make a pivot table in Excel. Instead of trudging through an entire course, you can find a how-to video on that one topic. Think YouTube, but with industry experts rather than some random person on the internet.
Interested in podcasting? There’s a course on that. Or how about cloud computing? As you may have already guessed, there’s a course on that!
