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.

Nearpod

Nearpod is excellent for direct instruction. Its slides feature works just like a PowerPoint, however, it is displayed on all user's screens, so it can be utilized even in a large environment. In the classroom, it alleviates the problem of being able to see the board. The platform provides numerous engagement tools that can assess learning easily, quickly, and makes it fun for the users.

Pros

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

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.

If there's one thing this product does well, it's the user interface and overall usability. If you look up a course, you'll find it; if you want to watch a video, it's there. There's no special wizardry required to make it functional— they either have it, or they don't. They really do a fantastic job of making it painless.

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.

The support staff for Nearpod is top-notch. I have not had technical issues, but I did have a concern about my bill and they reached out to me nearly immediately to address the problem. I was very satisfied with how they handled the interaction from beginning to end. They did a great job.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Nearpod

The custom, integrated, online content, along with school libraries, makes this product superior to PearDeck. Nearpod exceeds PowerPoint because of the ease of use, the student paced lessons, and the ability to embed CFUs.

Return on Investment

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.

Nearpod

  • The impact is awesome. It gives students a digital option other than PowerPoint for presentations.
  • The feedback tool allows you to follow students in realtime.
  • The shallow learning curve made it easy encourage other faculty to try it.
