LinkedIn Launches Learning Platform

September 23, 2016

LinkedIn on Thursday unveiled its own learning platform, which its paying members can use to learn new skills and make themselves more attractive to potential employers. LinkedIn Learning features about 9,000 existing courses from Lynda.com, which the professional networking site acquired last year, and plans to add about 25 new courses a week. The company also plans to launch an enterprise version of the platforms, which employers will be able to use to recommend courses to their employees.
