When I find an application that helps me as much as learning it is difficult to talk about something I do not like, the only thing that has been complicated for me is finding courses in Spanish.

The range of courses exceeds 5,000 specific courses in different subjects, and in different languages. Among them we can find: courses to complement your business training in areas such as marketing or digital skills, courses to encourage your creativity, or to increase your technological skills.

This gives us an opportunity to enhance our professional skills and job opportunities.

The platform is well structured so the user finds and accesses the courses that interest him in the simplest way possible.

You will be able to save the courses that interest you in your library, and the courses you are doing at the moment and the ones you have done previously.

Another advantage is that you are allowed to download the files of the course you are doing, in order to facilitate offline study.

What do you dislike?

There are few courses in Spanish.

There are some topics that are not very complete.

There are also no courses about the main vendors certifications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test it. It's free. You have nothing to lose.

Study a course and get your own conclusions.

Would you like to improve your training with specific courses? Then LinkedIn Learning is what you were looking for.

"Great opportunities, wish there were more..."

What do you like best?

I really like the short nature of the videos and learning tools. It's easy to use and do with some down time at work. It also is pretty comprehensive, the videos I've dealt with are very well planned out and easy to follow. They seem to have had some effort put into them and the production quality is nice as well. They don't seem like low budget youtube videos, more like professional videos that a college might put out for their actual online classes.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there isn't necessarily associated reading material. I also dislike that there aren't a lot of free options with a free account. It's a little difficult to convince an employer to get this for you when there are many other free options out there with similar production quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product is really good, just know that there are equally good free options out there if you just take a second to look.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been learning about some management skills and how to improve my own work ethics. I have gained some insight in how other people understand the work place and how to navigate it myself. I have also learned and benefited from learning about risk and when to take risk. It was inspiring to know that I have a decent amount of control over my career and to know where and when to go with it. My experience was very practical.

"So far the best learning tool I've found!"

What do you like best?

Lynda.com has a database of carefully selected courses that almost includes every skill I want to learn. The courses always assume that I know nothing about my inquired field, and it provides practice files, detailed lecture sections that start from the ground up, and accompanied training.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, Lynda's courses start with stuff that's too basic. For example, how to open a file, how to upload a photo, etc. I try to scroll through those parts, but sometimes I miss sections of useful information because of that. But listening to a 10-minute talk about, what's to me, common sense could be kind of annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check this self-learning tool out. Helps if you want to pick up another skill besides your day-to-day job, learn software skills for yourself or improve your current job efficiency and capability. It even gives out certificates you can link to your LinkedIn profile.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Self-learning tool. Learned the basic SEO.

"Genuine, dynamic, full of surprises like this is Linkedin Learning"

What do you like best?

The advantages of belonging to the club Linkedin Learning are many, of course we have to admit that it is not a service for anything economic, but it is totally worth it, we have plans from $ 30 to even $ 120 per month, it is not less true that obtain certificates issued by this company would make it easier for us to find job offers that are very well paid, much faster, by having the validation of the social network itself in terms of the knowledge of its members.

What do you dislike?

The high costs involved in belonging to this teaching program can not be faced by the vast majority of those who start a working life with little money, if it is true that they have many courses of high value for various projects in specific examples those based on Wordpress, which requires certain knowledge of programming oriented to the CMS (Content Management System) very specific. In addition, it is important to mention that the certificates issued are quite difficult to process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the platform to save time of transfers of employees and to maximize the time of the employee in the workplace, give at least the employee 2 hours a day so you can complete your study cycle properly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Train a large number of employees is much easier with Linkedin if you do not have the funds to sponsor days of classroom courses, the cheapest option is courses via videos or video calls via the Internet, employees can have at least 2 hours of daily study and continue in the workplace to continue with the workday.

"I have never learned so much so fast!"

What do you like best?

The videos are succinct, and filled with valuable information. The people teaching the courses are thought out and descriptive, making each topic easy to understand. I think there are two favorite things about this for me.

1. You get a certificate of completion at the end of each course, which goes on your LinkedIn profile, giving credit to what you have studied.

2. You can take the videos on the go with you and learn anywhere on their LinkedIn Learning app.

What do you dislike?

That you cannot access content/exercise files directly from the mobile app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would browse your options online if you are looking to budget your learning tools, and do as many free courses as you can (there is a plethora of Youtube videos, a free trials, etc.) before you dive into LinkedIn Learning. The cool thing about LinkedIn learning is that they offer a free 30-day trial before you spend a dime. The reason I am paying for a 2nd month now was actually an accident, but I am glad I forgot to cancel my subscription because it has been WELL worth the $30 bucks! I would say go for it if you have a little extra cash to spend on learning. The certificates at the end are quite a treat and something to show for the time and effort of taking each course :-)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have discovered how much I still have to learn about my industry. I am a self taught graphic designer, and of course with that comes loopholes and things that you've overlooked. Even though I have been in the business for over 10 years, going through these basic courses have opened my eyes to new things and have already, in the short 2 months I have been a subscriber, allowed me to expand what I can offer my clients.

"Best Professional App"

What do you like best?

Its professional and people dont post personal things, like where there are eating. traveling drinking,

People are always willing to help, giving adrices, posting jobs from companies they know or from people that have shared with them.

I like the possition that allows you to apply directly without taking you out of the platform.

also i like the fact that you can apply to multiple positions in diff countries.

I also like that if your resume is beeing taking into consideration you are notified

i like the fact that you know how many people you have reach and from witch industries

i like that the updates are always for better and they are announced

What do you dislike?

you cant download interesting videos in order to share, also, i dont like that i cant go to a profile to examine being like blind, people knows you have seen theirs profile, it will be better if the apps ask, would you like the person to know that you were looking at their profile.

I would like that all the jobs posted are likedin friendly to apply, not that you have to sing in in another platform, and start from scratch your resume. that must be fixed.

i dont like that some updates only work for a group of people

i dont like that the refresh doesn't work nice sometimes you see on Monday post you have previously see on friday and miss a lot of good post

Recommendations to others considering the product

i cant since im not a user at this time, but since its likedIn it for sure will be easy to use, i will try right now to use the learning in order to see how easy it will be to use.

"LOVE LOVE LOVE LYNDA"

What do you like best?

Obviously I'm a huge Lynda fan. Your options for creative and analytical learning are endless. One of my favorite things about Lynda is that as technology changes and updates, so do the Lynda courses! I am a heavy Adobe Creative Cloud user and with every software update, Lynda updates the courses with clearly labeled "new" segments. All you have to do is click on the "new" sections and you will learn exactly what you need to be caught up. In addition, they will update the entire course as a whole every couple years. I also love that you can download project files for those of us who need to physically DO what is being taught. This is little but I love how there's a little check mark icon next to the videos that you have completed. There's something about seeing your progress that feels very satisfying.

What do you dislike?

Let's be honest, you mostly likely share your account with someone. If you happen to be in the same course but at different segments, you have to bounce back and forth. My dream is that they would add a feature like Netflix and Hulu have and let account holders set up users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DO IT! Lynda is the best resource you can get!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any questions that pop up can be answered with Lynda. It's one thing to have a quick fix to any creative needs but it's another thing to actually learn the how and why of what you're trying to accomplish.

"Easily Accessible e-learning resources on LinkedIn"

What do you like best?

It's simple to search for specific topics/themes and depending on its high demand of knowledge, there are multiple options of resources to browse. For instance, I've used this platform for searching resources related to project management (i.e. excel and data collection, creating plans, etc.) and there were many articles and videos to watch.

What do you dislike?

On the contrary, if the topic/theme one is searching for is very specific, there are limited resources to review.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This platform is a good source to learn the basics on whatever professional topic/theme of interest. However, I would still recommend using other platforms that are geared to providing professional resources in specific areas. This will help enrich knowledge and have a more full understanding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

More specifically the resources I use on LinkedIn Learning are related to my field of work - project management.

"An extensive collection of courses from various domains from the industry experts."

What do you like best?

Lynda has become my goto online learning source for the last two years. I extensively use Lynda. There are two key facts that make Lynda Unique. First, you can expect to find almost any course. Be it on photography, graphic design, or data analytics. You will find the course of your interest. Second, the duration of the course. Usually, MOOCs take quite a long time to complete (25 to 35 hours). But, courses on Lynda can be completed within ~10 hours. This is because for a given topic, e.g. photography., there will be multiple courses that discuss the topic at different levels of comprehensiveness. On a given topic, there are courses for a beginner to an expert.

What do you dislike?

The desktop app isn't stable enough. Sometimes I had difficulty in logging into the application. This might be because Lynda allows multiple ways to enter one's credentials. Other than that the app is great and no serious concerns.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I personally feel Lynda is worth the investment because of the reasons I have already discussed. An extensive number of courses that are taught by the industry experts is what makes Lynda unique. The desktop application is a big plus for Lynda. You can download the courses for offline viewing, hence you need not rely on an internet connection. I didn't find these features with other MOOCs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Lynda mostly for learning and acquiring new skills. For example, Lynda has a great set of courses on photography. Anyone who aspires to be a photographer could learn significantly from these courses. Also, the contribution of Lynda is extensive in someone developing a new skill set. For example, since data analytics is the area in demand these days, you could find a number of courses on data analytics that use different programming languages like Python, R, etc.

"Great for Training and Professional Development"

What do you like best?

Lynda is very easy to use and can help with training on software and/or specific skills (i.e. JavaScript or email management) to advance your career. It offers different learning paths and can also be integrated with Degreed (another great tool for training) where progress can be tracked and also be seen by your manager/company. Each training has specific time estimates that will give you an idea of how long it will take to complete it. Once completed you can also get certificates. Courses can also be selected based on skill level (i.e. beginner, advanced etc.) and it's very easy to navigate through the UI.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about Lynda. It's very easy to navigate and there are many filters that can help finding the course/video that is right for you. The only downside maybe is that you can only access what is in their library and not add training videos to courses if you found any from other resources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for professional and personal development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company offers Lynda for professional development and as a resource to learn new or improve skills.

"A one stop shop for all kinds of training"

What do you like best?

The sheer amount of topics and training that are available is mind-boggling. Several of the training I've seen are more thorough and expansive than similar uses I was taught in a college class. Many of the topics are useful for personal and professional work. The interface is simple and it's easy to keep track of your progress.

What do you dislike?

Some topics have too many different trainings available that teach the same or overlapping information. I suppose it is helpful to have a few different means of sharing info because of learning styles and similar, but it can also make it frustrating to choose which training you want for a particular skill.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is an important tool for enterprise-wide training and growth. I would highly suggest using Lynda to improve the skills of your employees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Expanding my professional abilities, mostly in the areas of information management and document creation. Lynda has enabled me to learn things that would normally cost significant sums of money across various trainings and conferences.

"Enjoyable and Essential"

What do you like best?

Good info in HD, top notch content. Some of the presentors have literally made me laugh out loud in a public library. I can have a badge for completed course on my LinkedIn profile.

What do you dislike?

I wish they had a text only transcript so I can learn without headphones in public. I can't be having my training seminars blasting through my laptop speakers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just dive in and use it to its full potential which is vast. Make the most out of your yearly subscription, and you will come out ahead every time. I understand that software of this quality is more than worth the asking price, but maybe a free version wouldn't be so bad? Honestly you don't owe anyone that and it's probably a bad business investment for you, but I guarantee offering all the features in all countries humanly possible would greatly advance globalization in terms of business and result in reduced incompetence and ignorance at the very least.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

That leadership takes hard work, and info about goal setting and follow through. I was identified as a leader even in elementary school, and it's beyond amazing to pick up where I left off with no ads.

"Review for lynda"

What do you like best?

The best feature of lynda is the vast number of training available for so many marketing strategies. It works well on both my android phone as well as on my windows operating system.

Lynda has well trained instructors who train in a well paced manner. Each training is further divided into subtopics which have individual quizzes as well, which ensure that we retained the content well. The user friendliness of this website is what makes me love it a lot.

What do you dislike?

Lynda is not easily accessible to everyone, and it can be quite expensive if you are not directly affiliated with a university so that you can access it with you university's account. There is also no way you can give feedback about the training which can be good for both the instructors uploading the training materials and for other students who might want to access these training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should definitely give it a go for training!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for marketing and tutoring training for my job as a peer tutor at TAMU. It is quite helpful for real life applications of tutoring and I get points for leveling up and getting paid extra for my job.

"supplemental training"

What do you like best?

What I like best about this program are the bite size, versatile lessons. I can learn virtually anything. When our programs are looking to expand or we are researching new potential programs, Lynda.com is a great tool to get a quick primer on a subject that we might delve more deeply into.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the most that I don't have much time to do the lessons provided. This isn't really the fault of Lynda.com, rather that my office doesn't easily allow for specific time to be set aside for training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To others who are looking to use Lynda.com, I would recommend that you ask your supervisor to allow you to set aside time specifically for this training. I feel like this might be normal for many offices/companies but in my personal situation, it is difficult to use the program when we are not allotted time specifically for this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Training for admin skills as well as developing subject matter expertise

"10 years ago Lynda taught me photoshop. Today she's teaching me machine learning. "

What do you like best?

Lynda.com has been around for a while and this maturity clearly shows in the well-rounded short courses that it offers. I especially like the option to download exercise files and use them during the course.

What do you dislike?

Does not offer financial aid for students like coursera.

Even though platforms like coursera and Khan Academy have become increasingly popular in the recent days, Lynda is still a great resource for learning new skills and the freedom to learn that Lynda offers is great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an engineering student, I try my best not to lose sight of what's happening in the world around us and enhance my skill set to include skills that I would have otherwise not acquired in the classroom. I have used Lynda.com to learn photoshop, advanced excel formulas, playing the guitar and coding in python.

"A site with a wide range of training options"

What do you like best?

If you have a team that is very big and have a wide range of skills they need to improve, then this is the site for you. Lynda.com has a robust list of options for training. Is well organized and you can find pretty much anything. Personally, I have reviewed videos about design, photography, development, and even management. I like that keeps track of what you have watched.

What do you dislike?

There is no a smart way to identify your skill level so you can be "assigned" to the right level. Many times I ended up skipping videos because it was too basic. I wish they had a way to test your level and then provide suggestions as to where you should start.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your team is very technical and requires training with coding like PHP, databases, JavaScript, etc., then Lynda.com may not be the right option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a very efficient way to learn things in a system that keeps track of the progress. It also provides a robust set of options for different type of learners and includes practical examples to follow.

"Great and Inexpensive Method For Upgrading In Business"

What do you like best?

I love that with a free premium trial you gain access to the invaluable lessons taught on this site ranging from social media implementation to coding and professional speaking all from industry proven experts. The cost associated with a premium membership is still worth it when considering the use of these services. If you are running a lean business model and want to cut costs, LinkedIn is a great one stop shop for focusing efforts on learning new skillsets.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that this arrangement is only available if you have access to premium. Otherwise, nothing else crosses the mind. Also there should be a direct follow up between the poster of the video and the users viewing the content.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I consider that within whichever period you are granted access to this fine repository of information, use it to the full extent of the time you have available. Whichever area of business you are struggling in, purvey the resources provided on LinkedIn Learning. The .pdf's included are also great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving interactivity on Pinterest through social media marketing courses without having to hire or contract a consultant in this field. This puts new employees ahead of the learning curve tremendously. I am also able to learn these lessons on the go which makes for less overhead and wasted time at work.

"Fantastic Resource for a Variety of Topics"

What do you like best?

Lynda provides top-notch educational courses on a variety of subjects. The interface is solid and the information is reliable!

What do you dislike?

It can be expensive if you don't have an account through your place of business and/or you don't use it often. Fortunately, there are plenty of areas in which you can learn, so if you carve out the time you aren't likely to run out of material.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lynda is a great opportunity for business and/or individuals to expand their knowledge. We have used Lynda for a variety of subjects. The information is reliable and relevant. I was surprised at how current the courses are even for evolving digital platforms. Lynda won't replace networking at conferences and specialized individual training, but it is a VERY good foundation. Especially for companies who lack the budget to send employees to training.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being sent to conferences or specialized training can get very expensive. The budget at a non-profit is often not conducive to these kinds of opportunities. Fortunately through Lynda, we can educate ourselves on a variety of areas. Obviously real-world implementation is key, but this will provide a very solid foundation in which we can grow our experience.

"Lynda Pro for Training Initiative"

What do you like best?

Seats can be assigned on an as-needed basis to people who either request training in a defined area, or in an area that their manager has determined that they would like their staff to be trained. It's a lot simpler to onboard staff who have varying experience with software, especially the G Suite products from Google, by assigning them a course playlist that walks them through some of the things we do with calendar, e-mail, groups, documents, and Drive storage.

What do you dislike?

The limited number of transfers is the main complaint. Once your account runs out of transfers, you will have to purchase more. I would rather have us just have the limitation of a number of simultaneous seats, and not be limited throughout the year by having to transfer users in and out until the transfers run out. Seats are fairly expensive, and the limitation of transfers when you have a small number of seats (we have 5) can be restrictive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We use Lynda to onboard new staff on our use of Google Suite and Office products, instead of having a hit or miss with training once a "how" ticket is submitted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The often time-consuming 'can you show me how to do this' or 'how do I do this' questions regarding software packages which we deploy can be answered thoroughly and without a vast investment of time with personal training sessions. We are both onboarding new staff and using it to give more extended training to users or managers who request it.

"LinkedIn Learning: A Personalized Experience"

What do you like best?

LinkedIn Learning is the next best thing to having a tutor for individual needs. It utilizes all of the components to a successful lesson such as goal setting, instructional assistance based upon the type of learner that you are, and a focus on mastery and life long learning. The Lynda.com library of learning videos is particularly impressive and covers a massive amount of tutorials and helpful content.

What do you dislike?

I do not have any dislikes to be perfectly honest. LinedIn Learning is affordable for users, gives employees the opportunity to take initiative, and can connect directly to their LinkedIn profiles for more professional recognition. It doesn't get easier than that!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for ease of use without the university cost, this program is a must and can be tailored to meet any business needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For starters, this platform has the ability to differentiate and reach everyone no matter what level they are. Depending on your company smart goals, each employee can further themselves and receive a quality professional development. Currently, we are utilizing the language program (specifically Spanish due to our Arizona base).

"Lynda.com is the training site to go to!"

What do you like best?

Lynda.com is one of my favorite online learning sites. I love how professionally are the courses built and how deep each goes. I love that it is connected with LinkedIn now and you can post certificates directly to your profile.

What do you dislike?

Hmmm... I'd have to think really hard to come up with something I don't like about Lynda.com. I have been using the site for couple of years and it keeps improving.

Oh, there is actually one thing. I'm a learning professional so I know how should online courses be built. One area for improvement for Lynda.com would be switching from the talking-head videos to a design that supports learning. According to one of the multimedia principles, the image principle, people do not necessarily learn better when the teacher's image is on the screen. I see talking-head videos a lot on lynda.com. So this is one area that I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to get a membership through your employer, your university or your local library.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm definitely solving a problem that as a freelancer, I have to keep learning and honing my skills. Lynda.com helps me to achieve that and stay above the competition. I take many online courses and keep my skills fresh.

"Tons of resources easily available"

What do you like best?

LI Learning is amazing, it allows you the opportunity to learn and advance at your own pace, and learn skills that are relevant to you. It also helps advance where you want to be going. It is also nice to be able to access the training anywhere. No more being stuck in a boring, cold training room, training can be completed at the comfort of your own home!

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult to chose through so many different topics, it would be also nice to be able to earn certifications through LI Learning. Training can be more industry specific or even culturally appropriate. Focus on locations as topics can vary from different places geographically and may not hold true for everyone. It would be nice to have options to work with others and assign groups so staff can still remotely complete assignments together, or even have remote group work with others taking the course at the same time like a virtual classroom setting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take time to determine which programs you want to use and review the training before implementing to others. Some of the training was more entry level and it would have been beneficial for management to preview them prior to implementation, which is not an issue of linkedin.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is advantageous as everyone can take the same training regardless of where they are located and receive consistent messaging. This is important in our global company.

"So Much to Learn!"

What do you like best?

There are so many different kinds of videos to help you boost your career and enhance your personal skills in the work place. Most of all, I love how you can earn certifications. There is a specific path that I have been pursuing so that I can be an AMA certified Digital Marketer, which is greatly helping me fine tune my career path and skill set.

What do you dislike?

There are a few kinks, which make me think that LinkedIn Learning still has a few technical barriers to overcome. I am pursing the AMA certified Digital Marketer path and I have completed everything. However, two of the twenty courses has recently been updated so now I have to fully redo both of those courses, quizzes, and exams! So sadly, my original plan of using this certification to help me request for a promotion at the end of the month is no longer doable. Because I need to do two more courses (video content = 6+ hours), I won't be able to finish before I go on vacation next week and before I request for a promotion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely use!! Just be careful of pusing a Path. When courses get updated, you have to redo them. So if you complete 20 courses and 1 gets updated, you have to do it again.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I enjoy being a jack of all trades and a master of one. I am working to be a master in Marketing, which includes content marketing, digital marketing, product marketing, branding, etc. LinkedIn Learning offers courses for all of these areas and more. I can develop technical and creative skills to help me in the workplace. This allows me to be a strong asset at my company since there are so many problems to solve and obstacles to overcome.

"Flexible and engaging but cheaper substitutes avalaible"

What do you like best?

I like how flexible these programs are. They offer a variety of topics on your time frame. The experts have been a mixed bag, some are more helpful than others, but that is to be expected with any course. The free trial period enables a clear understanding of the platform prior to full commitment which allows more insights on the value added.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of similar products available and many for a more reasonable price (Or even free). Some organizations and industries may not have as many cheap or free resources available but explore all options before selecting a learning platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take full advantage of the free trial period. Explore all the uses and give other co-workers or employees an opportunity to explore the topics covered and even try some classes. The more time you spend on the platform during the trial will ensure you have a complete assessment of its value and how it could fit into your business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A quick and on-demand way to increase professional knowledge. Has provided my coworkers and I an easy way to expand knowledge base. The most use has been new employees, getting up to speed on the latest and greatest trends quickly.

"Learning more with LinkedIn Learning"

What do you like best?

What I like best about LinkedIn Learning is its' accessibility and ease in teaching material. There are so many different tutorials available to me that give me a broad range of topics so I can learn about many different software systems from the ease of my home.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about LinkedIn Learning is that I do not always know which type of tutorials they have available. It is hard for me to find different tutorials within the LinkedIn system. I did not even know this was a feature of the platform until years after I had become a LinkedIn user.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using LinkedIn Learning as a student to help better understand different systems and how to be a more complete applicant to employers. I have realized the benefit through better understanding the qualifications needed for different jobs I have applied to and different vocabulary used by business-minded people.

"Linkedin Learning - the New At Home Business Coach for All Education Needs"

What do you like best?

I liked that not only do they have lessons on just about any subject, but they use real professionals to train you. You also have small chapter quizzes and end of lesson tests to make sure you understand and are following along.

What do you dislike?

the only thing that I didn't like was how expensive it is. It was costing me $60 a month to be a premier member and then LinkedIn learning is free, but it is not free if your not a premium user. $60 a month for e-learning is very steep.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking to improve any business skills what-so-ever, then this is the platform for you! I have even looked up very difficult instructions for adobe photoshop which is a very difficult graphic program and it told me how to do it within minutes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used this for Public Relations, Marketing, social media engagement and several other business classes to help me improve my business knowledge and ethics.

"Gain the skills you need to be successful in any role!"

What do you like best?

Learning modules are incredibly comprehensive and there is a wide range of skills to dig deeper into as a novice or seasoned professional.

What do you dislike?

You do not get a formal degree or certification in completing a course, but you do expand on the knowledge gained from the content provided.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is certainly worth it if you're trying to build new skills or deepen existing skill sets. The minimal cost (monthly fee or annual membership) is worth the investment. You gain the knowledge necessary to be successful in your current job or apply new skills that will benefit you in future job searches. I would consider looking at other MOOCs (like Coursera) if you desire a formal certificate that states you've completed a certain course. If not, LinkedIn Learning is the right platform to expose yourself to new styles of learning, software or subject areas that will support your work streams. Consider applying your professional development stipend towards this service, it will benefit both the individual (you) and the organization you work for once you gain new skills!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you need to quickly improve a skill or knowledge of a software package, then yeah, Linkedin Learning (www.lynda.com) will serve as an excellent introduction. If you are doing this as part of portfolio development, you still need to design and execute a project on your own.

"Great for learning design softwares"

What do you like best?

The quality of the videos is great. Instructions are clear, and instructors seem very knowledgeable in their fields. I also like that they provide practice files, so you can open them up and follow along.

What do you dislike?

Some of the videos could be a little dull and boring to watch. They are highly scripted and some instructors are more engaging than others. But videos are short and you can skip the ones you don't want to watch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Lynda.com if you are learning design software such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects, and Sketch. There are also great design foundation classes and documentaries to watch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping my design software skills up to date. It's great for learning specific software, and there is always something to learn whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or an advanced user of the software.

"Endless learning possibilities"

What do you like best?

The variety of topics to learn is seemingly endless. I'm currently learning more about SEO, and have courses lined up already to learn about video editing, as well as HR and recruiting.

There's a variety of lengths as far as video content is concerned, and the UI is easy enough to navigate around and be clear on where to go (next)

What do you dislike?

I dislike not being able to view the videos offline while I'm commuting (I take the subway 40 mins./day each way). I appreciate the fact I can view off of wifi, but I'd like to be able to download content/videos to my phone so I can utilize my time better and learn something.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Learning more about niche recruiting and other HR related stuff. Personally I enjoy being able to learn more about other areas of business I have an interest in but didn't know where to start.

"Lynda.com has improved my skills for my job and personal interests"

What do you like best?

I use Lynda.com to learn new skills and to keep up with how to use new features when the software I use updates. I have taught myself web design; WordPress and greatly improved my skills with Adobe. We recently moved to Office 365 and Sharepoint. I was able to take the admin courses to set up and manage accounts. If I need a refresher on a feature, I log in and rewatch only the steps I need to complete a task.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is hard to do a search to find the right class for what I am trying to accomplish. Or sometimes in a search you get older products or a course that just mentions the one you wanted info on but it isn't a course on the subject search.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to improve your skills, whether for your job or personally and do it at your own pace, Lynda.com is a great way to do so. You can earn certification and with a premium account download practice files to follow along.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can perform many roles at work by watching the courses such as WordPress and Adobe that we would have had to hire a third-party to complete. I read a lot of articles for improving all aspects of my job.
