What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning is an online learning platform that enables professionals to achieve their career objectives and aspirations by acquiring new skills or prop up existing ones through a self-paced learning experience.
Lynda.com, an industry leader in online education was co-founded in 1995 by Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin. LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com in April 2015 at the cost of $1.5 billion. In September 2016 LinkedIn incorporated Lynda.com courses into the LinkedIn platform, as ‘LinkedIn Learning’.
The online library of 10,000+ courses is updated weekly and cover a wide range of business, creative and technical topics from leadership to coding.
