There are a few ways to see the new courses that are added. First, you can subscribe to the LinkedIn Learning blog here , and every Monday an article will be sent to you that lists the new course titles added that week.

Second, your homepage content recommendations will show you the newest and most popular courses.

Lastly, if you’re searching for a particular topic using the search bar, once you’ve done a search click on the “sort by” drop down at the top right and click “newest” and it will show you the newest courses on that topic first.

Learning paths are compiled playlists of related video courses on a specific topic or career track. They include multiple courses by different expert instructors to teach a variety of skills and information associated with that subject or profession. They indicate a specific series of courses and videos taken in sequence.

Collections are also a group of courses and videos related to a specific topic, but they do not have a particular order, and do not need to be watched in sequence.

Review the Course Content Corner to see LinkedIn’s latest courses and learning paths, content mapping docs, and instructors to watch.

If you wish to consider creating custom learning paths, contact CATL (catl@loyalistcollege.com).

In the app/play store on your device, simply find the ‘LinkedIn Learning’ app for download. Once downloaded, you will login with your same desktop credentials, and your learning will automatically go with you wherever you go. Using the mobile option is a bit different and has the option to turn the courses to “audio only” via a toggle within each course.

Contact Learning support is the place where you can contact the LinkedIn Learning support team and get 1on1 support.
