Do I really need a LinkedIn account?

A big benefit of LinkedIn Learning is the ability to showcase your learning on your profile page.  This lets others, including current or potential employers, know that you are able to learn and willing to do so.  A growth mindset and continuous learning are desirable soft skills in today's job market.  Pairing your Learning account with a LinkedIn account can help you easily showcase what you have learned to anyone who lands on your profile page.

What is the difference between a learning path and a collection?

A learning path is a compiled playlist of related video courses on a specific topic. They may include multiple courses by different expert instructors to teach a variety of skills and information associated with that topic. They are a specific series of courses and videos taken in sequence.

A collection is also a group of courses and videos related to a specific topic; however, they do not have a particular order and do not need to be watched in sequence.

What is a weekly learning goal and how do I set it?

You can set weekly learning goals that help you prioritize your learning needs. Every minute you spend watching content on LinkedIn Learning will count towards your weekly goal. You can track your progress via the progress bar on your home page and you will also receive reminders to complete your goal.

You can select a Learning goal in one of 2 ways-

  1. When first activating your Learning account
    From the weekly goal page, select the desired option and then click ‘Set goal’.
  2. When accessing the LinkedIn Learning homepage
    Log in to your LinkedIn Learning account, click ‘Set goal’ from the top left of your Learning homepage, select the desired option and then click ‘Set goal’.

You can change your learning goal whenever you want. To make changes to your learning goal, log in to your LinkedIn Learning account, click ‘Edit goal’ from the Home page and make your changes.

How do I save content to view later?
