A great scenario where Linkedin Learning is fantastic is when working on a project where we miss specific skillsets. 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.

Udemy for Business is a perfect solution for lower-cost training that enables your team to learn and explore new skills without having to pay the literal $10's of thousands of dollars to engage an external trainer for remote or in-person training.However, Udemy is not as good for situations where your reports may feel that they will have lots of questions to be answered. Udemy for Business's responsiveness to questions is good, but can never be as good as real-time questions and feedback.

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.

  • One of the biggest problems of this platform is the credibility of their certificates because they are not endorsed and don't have the support of a university as other platforms do.
  • Anyone can upload a course, so sometimes you will have a bunch of options, but you really don’t know which one is the best for you among all of them.
  • Another thing that I don’t like about Udemy is that the platform is not very well organized, everything looks crowded.

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!

I never had a problem using Lynda. The software is very user-friendly and the design is intuitive. I never had to ask for support so I couldn’t give a perfect 10 because I’m not sure how your support staff would respond. A lot of companies use bots to deal with customer support but I much prefer to deal with a real person.

I haven't had to contact Udemy for Business for support reasons. I gave a 10 here because of it's availability across numerous platforms: Web, Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, even smart-tv apps make it trivially convenient to do some learning wherever you are. This helps my reports engage better with their learning, especially if they prefer to defer the training until the couch at home after work. It just makes for great user experience.

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.

Before Udemy, we would have to look for a suitable trainer. After that we have to check the schedule of the trainer and wait for them to go to our office. Also, later o, if you have new staff members joining the team, the process might start again. With Udemy for Business, everything is stored online and can be accessed anytime. So it's a lot more convenient and less time consuming for us to develop our staff.

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.

  • Better knowledge of coding practices has led to higher quality code.
  • Knowledge gained in trending libraries that our company can utilize for future projects.
  • Happier employees. Providing a service like this shows you care.
