I really like this platform as you get many choices and lectures given by experienced people in their respective fields. Moreover, you can share your progress later on the Linkedin profile by putting certified under the License and Certification section, which makes you stand out.


The ease of the courses and the vast variety of courses offered are some of my favorite things about LinkedIn Learning.

The issues I had with personal growth and self-reflection in a professional environment have been solved through LinkedIn Learning. I’ve realized the benefits of online courses and video tutorials through this service.

Shannon is now garbage since LinkedIn/Microsoft took over

July 20, 2020 was the greatest resource my student ever used. Now that LinkedIn and Microsoft have taken over its garbage. They are trying to USE us as a monetary value rather than as clients for their service. Look to other similar resources out there now! Avoid LinkedIn as they aren’t here for their learners. Their rep even told me their content “is not suitable for under 18” as though a 16 can’t learn this technology. Horrible marketing too!!

I am so MAD right now. I paid 80 bucks for 2 pages to basically answer questions for a paper. Told me it would be done, but guess what I just got an email from Linda stating they can refund my money or save as a credit because the paper can not be done. I was freaking out bc I need the paper by tomorrow, and today is mothers day which I have no time to write a paper. I went to another company, so lets see how they do. I pray I get this done. oh another company burned me for 80 bucks already and it is hard to get my money back .do not they wrote a terrible paper it looked like a 7th grader wrote it. Horrible- I am so upset with both Linda and focus essay horrible businesses
