Degreed

Degreed is well suited for large companies where you want to keep track of your employees progress. It makes it easy to access all learning material in one stop. Degreed integrates with Udemy, Harvard Manage Mentor, LearningHub, and many more.

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

A great scenario where LinkedIn Learning is fantastic is when working on a project where we miss specific skill sets. My coworker was skilled in Microsoft Power BI, while I was not. So I spent 3 hours going through a few LinkedIn Learning Power BI trainings to get up to speed. Another coworker was not experienced in Google Analytics, and again, LinkedIn Learning filled in the blanks.A scenario where it's less appropriate is finding specific needs for your use case. While LinkedIn Learning is great for learning how something works and exploring test projects - don't expect it to hold your hand to do something very specific. For example - if you need to deploy a app using YOUR SPECIFIC WORKFLOW, you're not going to find a point-by-point tutorial. You'll find courses on how to deploy it in different ways, but not exactly the way you need it.

Pros

Degreed

  • Enterprise-wide provisioning of required and/or optional trainings.
  • Clean presentation of anything our admin's need to show with great feedback opportunities and participation rates.
  • Accountability and progress tracking is pretty spot on as you progress through a course.

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

  • Industry expert authors/instructors - you're learning from people with pedigree.
  • Breadth and depth of catalog - not only is there a wide range of topics and disciplines, but there are frequently several levels of depth within each (eg. Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).
  • Time needed to complete each course AND each section of a course are included - you know what you're getting into from the first click.

Cons

Degreed

  • Keeping in touch with co-workers in the same team is a little hard.
  • The news feed can be distracting with too many articles thrown at you.
  • Hard to keep track of most popular courses.

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

  • Different results depending on each person's learning style or each expert's teaching style. Like in school, not all matchups will be beneficial and totally, completely informational.
  • Sometimes the videos can be long, which means it can be easy to get distracted/not pay attention. Sometimes long videos are warranted, sometimes they're not. Lynda is best for candidates with the self-discipline to stay committed.

Lynda.com is very simple to use, from finding videos to watching to going back and finding the chapter you want to re-watch. Love it all!

While it's great for the management and tracking of employees learning, there is still room for growth. It could use more courses and content developed by Degreed rather than relying on external platforms content.

Support has been fantastic and responsive. I have experienced very few issues with LinkedIn Learning but when I have had to reach out, there is very little time between the initial contact and a response from LinkedIn. They offer easy solutions and are able to help sort out any issues quite well. Moreover, our account manager was highly responsive and always making solid suggestions on how to optimize our usage of the platform.

Alternatives Considered

Degreed

I think that in a business setting, Degreed is more streamlined to benefit us than almost any other tool. Canvas is great in higher/lower education where the learning is the actual product. In a business setting, tools like Degreed and Bridge do a wonderful job helping our employees build and show their own ROI to upper management.

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

We have both lynda.com and Plural sight at my job. I like lynda.com when I am searching for a specific tool as it contains videos that hone in on teaching the attributes of a specific tool. Pluralsight's videos generally are longer and are more project based. But both sites are excellent resources. I can't really say which is better than the other.

Return on Investment

Degreed

  • Serves as an additional supplementary resource for learning to many employees.
  • Can be good way to upgrade skills.
  • Needs to have better focused learning pathways to make learning process smoother.

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

  • ROI has been positive. I've needed to know how to use an application, and lynda.com has helped me develop my skills. I know more after taking a lynda.com course than I did before it. That increase in knowledge and skills translates into greater productivity.
  • To be fair, I've never paid for a lynda.com license. I've used the licenses of former employers, and our public library has licensing deals with lynda.com for patrons. Since I have $0 invested in lynda.com, any knowledge gains represent a significant ROI.
