As you add skills to your LinkedIn Learning account, view content, and interact on LinkedIn, your account will continue to become more customized. This will help LinkedIn to recommend relevant content.
- [Instructor] At the top of the homepage you'll notice the new banner that appears. This banner will highlight new and noteworthy content, personalized for you each week. The courses are selected for you based on your current job and are influenced by unique LinkedIn data about trending skills for your industry and role. This page will be specifically personalized for you based on your LinkedIn profile if it's connected, the skills that you entered in that you're interested in and your activity on LinkedIn Learning. Notice that as I scroll down this page, we have these different carousels or rolls of suggested courses. LinkedIn will pin new and trending carousels at the top of the homepage followed by different groupings below that depending on your information and activity, are customized to you. So here you can see that I have Trending for Journalists, Stay sharp on Instructional Design and then below that we have Learn within 30 minutes, Trending on LinkedIn Learning, the Top liked, Recommended for me, and so on. So there's a ton of content that's specifically being suggested to me based on my information. At any time, hovering over a course thumbnail will expand it and this shows you more information about the course. We have the name as well as the level that it's at, the amount of time that it'll take and the date that it published on. You have the author here with some information about them as well as a description of the course. Now at any time, if it's a course that you'd like to watch but you don't have time right now, in the bottom right you can click on the bookmark icon and this will save it. I'll go ahead and do that. Let's say for another course, when I'm doing this, this is one that I don't want to watch. If that's the case, in the upper right corner you can click on the X and stop suggesting that. Doing this will let LinkedIn Learning know that you aren't interested in that course. Taking the time to save or delete these courses will also help to improve your future recommendations. So this is another great way to find content on the LinkedIn Learning platform and one that I recommend. Whereas some of the other ways we looked at, in order to find content, it helped you to find exactly what you were looking for. This page can help you find courses that you didn't even know existed or that you had never thought of. But over time you'll find some hidden gems here that will help you with your professional development.
