Playlists provide a great way to organize saved content on the LinkedIn Learning platform. You can create playlists on specific topics and then save courses directly to those collections.
- [Oliver] In previous videos, I've mentioned saving courses that you're interested in, and this is something I strongly recommend. In this video, let's take a look at a great way to organize courses that you've saved on LinkedIn Learning, and that's through the use of collections. Now in order to navigate to my collections, I'm going to go up to my profile picture in the top right, and I'll click here on the drop down menu and then select Collections. This brings me to my Collections page, but as you can see here, I don't have any yet. So what I'm going to do is to click on Create New Collection. From here, I can name it. I'll name it Design Skills. And then we can give a description if we'd like. I'm just going to go ahead and click Create. And like that, I've created my first collection, Design Skills. The problem, however, is that I don't yet have any items in it. Now if I go up to the search bar up top and I put in design skills, you can see here different courses. I'll actually filter that so only courses show up. And let's say here this Introduction to Graphic Design. If this is a course I want to save, in the bottom right corner, I can click on that bookmark icon. Now, when I do, it says, do you want to save it to a collection? And then, we can add it to a collection. So I'll click here, and it asks us which one, but we only have one so far, so I'll click Add to Design Skills. And like that, it's added. Now if I navigate back to my collections, I can see here that there is one item in the Design Skills collection. Now another way that we could do it is if we're looking, for example, courses on social media. From here, I see Personal Branding on Social Media, and this is a course that I'd like to save to a collection. Well, if I click on the Bookmark icon, I can click on Add to Collection. They ask me which one, but this isn't the one that I want to save it to. I actually want to create a new collection from here and have it added to that. So I'll click on Plus, Create New Collection. I'm going to call this one Social Media. I'll click Create. And now again, if we go back to Collections, on this page, I have two different collections, and they both have one item inside of them. Now as I start to find more content that I want to watch on social media or for design skills, I can add them to these collections. Once you've created collections, you can share them with other LinkedIn Learning members. There are two different ways that you can share them. One is from this Collections page. Remember I got to it by going from my profile to Collections, and on this page, I have the ability to share it right here. I'll click on Share for my Social Media collection. When I do, it brings up a pop up box, and by default, the collection is only visible to you, so no one else can see this. However, I could change that by clicking on the drop down and then clicking on All Members. It gives me a URL that I can copy and then only people with this link will be able to see my collection. So here I could copy this collection, send it out as an email, put it on social media, wherever I want to share that collection. The second way that we can do it is to go to the specific header for that collection. So here if I click on Social Media, this brings me to my actual collection and all of the items I had in here would show up. And as you can see, up at the top, another item is to share that. So I could share that, and let's say that this one, I want it to go to out to All LinkedIn Members again, and I'll copy that and send it out. Now, if at any time, I don't want it to be shared with other people, I can reverse that. I can go back in here, click on it, and put only visible to you. And then that collection will only be visible to you again. So take advantage of the Collections feature by saving courses you're interested in and organizing them into topics.
