New Look, same content

LinkedIn Learning offers 100% of the same library content in a new, industry driven platform to help you build professional skills across a vast range of job functions.

“Playlists” are now “Collections”

Collections are great for sharing learning goal oriented courses and videos. Browse through collections curated by other industry professionals or create your own collections to watch later.
