Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with LinkedIn Learning to bring more learning possibilities for your training and development!
LinkedIn Learning has become a great source of training for employees of all types. Learners can access courses on business, leadership, writing, programming, Microsoft and Google business apps, social media, and a variety of other professional topics.
Starting on Monday, March 4, your employees can access those courses directly within Continu. That means your administrators don’t need to manage multiple systems and your employees don’t need to wrangle multiple logins to get access to world-class content.
The Power of LinkedIn Learning
LinkedIn’s educational offerings are one of the platform’s best features. There’s a good chance that many of your employees are already using LinkedIn for its professional and social features, so making the jump to using it as a learning platform should be easy.
In 2015, LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com, a popular learning platform, and used it to kickstart their training and development capabilities. And because LinkedIn is the world’s foremost professional network, it has great insight into the courses that professionals want to take.
There are over 9,000 courses led by professionals, industry leaders, trainers, and other experienced teachers on LinkedIn Learning. Learners can draw on the experience of long-time veterans for both beginning and advanced courses. Whatever your employees’ familiarity level with a topic, they’ll find courses that suit them.
LinkedIn owns the entire content creation process and ensures that every training course is of the highest quality and focuses on practical applications for professionals.
If you’re not familiar with LinkedIn Learning, you can start a free one-month trial to check out the available courses and features like project files, certificates of completion, and mobile learning.
Combining LinkedIn Learning with Continu
With our new partnership, you can seamlessly offer your learners the vast experience of LinkedIn Learning teachers with the highly specific knowledge of your internal content. It’s the best of both worlds.
Your administrators can track learners’ progression on LinkedIn Learning courses directly from within Continu. Companies can offer—and administer—a wider variety of trainings than ever before.
In addition, users can browse, search, and learn about LinkedIn Learning courses directly within Continu without leaving the LMS.
This integration is especially useful for companies that prioritize learning and growth. LinkedIn Learning makes it easy for employees to learn new skills, improve those they already have, and explore entirely new areas of expertise.
Letting employees access this abundance of knowledge through your learning management system is a great way to make their training and development more efficient. And because Continu is directly integrated with LinkedIn Learning, there’s very little administrative work that needs to be done.
It’s a great match, and we’re proud to announce it. Keep an eye out for more announcements and ideas for combining your in-house trainings with LinkedIn Learning!
