What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning (previously Lynda.com) is an online educational platform that helps you discover and develop your creative, technology-related and study skills through expert-led course videos. Each course is delivered by an expert in the subject and is broken down into a series of short videos that are easy to follow.
