LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is an online learning platform that can help you acquire software, technology, business and creative skills to achieve learning, personal and professional goals as well as helping to build your skills set whilst at University.

The resource, which offers access to over 5000 video tutorials, is now freely available to all Loughborough University students from any desktop or mobile device.

LinkedIn Learning bridges the gap between the career you want and the skills you need. Learn online, at your own pace, with a library of 5,000+ creative, business, and technology courses, on subjects from Art to Zend.

You don't need a LinkedIn account to access the site, however if you do, you can link your account up and display your learning online. On completing a course, you receive a certificate, which you can display on your LinkedIn accomplishments!
