LinkedIn Learning is an online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals. Staff and students have access to the LinkedIn Learning library of engaging, top-quality courses taught by recognised industry experts.
What this means for you
You can start exploring all the opportunities that LinkedIn Learning has to offer:
Lisa, Bsc Adult Nursing
Lisa is studying for a nursing degree and has been asked to create a poster for one of her assignments. It has been a while since Lisa last created a poster and is unsure which software to use. Luckily Lisa discovered LinkedIn Learning which has a variety of short courses on poster design as well as presentation and poster apps like Sway, PowerPoint and Publisher.
Ade, BA Primary Education
Ade worked as a teaching assistant for 12 years and is now studying on the BA Primary Education course. She was worried that she wouldn’t have the digital skills to do her coursework, but she has discovered that she can teach herself the basics like Word, Excel and PowerPoint on LinkedIn Learning.
Librarians’ and Tutors’ recommendations:
Gamification of learning is an interesting introduction to using gaming formats to make learning engaging and effective. The course suggests tools that are applicable to both university and industry training settings.
I recommend Sway essential training because Sway can create professional, interactive presentations and online posters which can be used by all students as it is part of Office365.
I recommend Learning Word Desktop (Office 365/Microsoft 365) because it is simple and easy to follow and focuses on the most common basic features of Word. If you have ever found formatting a word document a bit fiddly, then this is for you!
I recommend How to organise your time because students are always telling us at the end of their studies, how they wish they had planned and managed their time better. It's also one reason why students panic at the last minute and turn to essay mills and plagiarism. Completing the course won't take up much time - but it will save you lots of future pain!
Digital Champion recommendations
My recommendation would be the short course Prioritizing Your Tasks. As students we tend to get overwhelmed by the workload. Handling our work, study and social life becomes difficult. This short course helps prioritize your tasks efficiently and consistently. It provides you with task management and priority management skills.
