Overall Satisfaction with LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)
I'm a HUGE fan of LinkedIn Learning and have been a user since it was Lynda.com. The sheer variety of courses and the extremely high quality of the courses make it the best value on the market. For LinkedIn users who have gaps in their learning, who want to pivot and learn new skills, or who just want to round out their knowledge, LinkedIn Learning is an invaluable tool for learners of all ages.
- Vast variety of lessons.
- Very high quality trainings.
- Great platform for engaging.
- Ability to ask the program author questions and get real time answers.
- Sometimes there are too many courses! Some AI intelligence to help sort courses.
- When a course is updated I don't necessarily want to watch the whole thing again. I would love to see what is new.
- Sometimes the platform hangs up a bit.
- I've learned things for business that I would have had to pay a lot more money for if I was hiring a coach or consultant.
- I found experts/trainers that I was able to hire from their courses online.
- I've learned things I don't "need" but enjoyed.
- I dipped my toes into things I thought I wanted to learn (Adobe Photoshop) and definitely decided NOT to spend my time on! But fortunately, I did not spend money on the training. Nothing against the course; I am graphically impaired.
I love that there is a Q&A section where you can ask the authors questions. They are pretty good about responding as well. I have never had to use the customer support for LinkedIn Learning but I imagine it's pretty good. I can usually find what I am looking for on the portal.

If there are gaps in an employees' knowledge, LinkedIn Learning is a great resource. In addition, some of the courses might not be applicable to the "job" but will help folks become better at life and their jobs (meditation courses, art courses, etc.). Some (not all) of the courses are too simplistic and don't have an advanced version. In some cases, employees need more thorough training on a particular subject.
