With all this time on our hands while social distancing, there’ve never been a better opportunity to learn some new skills and get into new hobbies. However, it can be daunting to decide where to start.

Have you heard about LinkedIn Learning?

Formerly known as Lynda.com, LinkedIn Learning is an online learning platform where you can find high-quality expert-led course videos. With over 16,000 courses, everyone is bound to find something they might be interested in.

And the best of it all?

The University has a campus-wide licence, so you can have unlimited access to all of these for free 😊
All you have to do is sign into MyEd, then choose Studies > Learning Resources > Study Tools > Build your skills and click on the LinkedIn Learning button.

The LinkedIn Learning portal

Once you are on the LinkedIn Learning portal you will see that the courses are divided into three main categories: Business, Technology, and Creative. You can either browse these or you can just search for your interests and see what’s available.

When you found a course you are interested in, you can start it straight away or save it for later. You can keep up with these under the “My Learning” tab 😊

If you have a LinkedIn profile, you can link it to your LinkedIn Learning profile for a more personalized experince, and to share some new skills you acquired.

Below is just a small demonstration, showing you that there is indeed a wide range of courses you can access: from a beginner’s guitar course to developing your skills with Excel, and so on. 😉
