Join Aaron Quigley for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting started with LinkedIn Learning, part of Gaining Skills with LinkedIn Learning.
- [Instructor] Before we get started finding and using LinkedIn Learning content, let's explore how to access and configure LinkedIn Learning for the first time. Here in my web browser, I've navigated to linkedin.com/learning I was already logged in to LinkedIn and so it brought me right to this page, but if you're not logged in to LinkedIn, you'll be prompted to do so. Now, the first step is to make sure we find the right learning materials, and we're going to do that by identifying what skills we'd like to learn. For this course, and to give us some context, I'm going to assume that I want to become an iOS app developer.
So to get started, I'm gonna start by selecting some of the skills that I think that I will need to become an app developer. Here, under the Enter Skills area, I'm just gonna start searching for Developer. As I look down the list, I can also see that iOS Development is a skill that's already listed. I'm gonna go and select that, and I can now see that it's a selected skill in the list below. Now, as I'm thinking about the skills around developing an app, I may also want to design some graphics inside that app. So maybe graphic design is a skill that I'd like to learn. I'm gonna go and type that out, and select Graphic Design.
At the same time, as I develop apps, I might need a website in order to market those, so I'm gonna look for Web Design, and go and add that as an additional skill. And finally, as I'm thinking about building an app, designing that app, putting that app on a website, I might wanna have some business staff in order to market that. So I'm gonna go ahead and look for Marketing, as a skill, and select it. Now that I have several skills selected, I'm gonna go and scroll down and click the Next button. Now that those skills have been selected, they're actually starting to influence the content that's been recommended to me inside of LinkedIn Learning.
As I start looking at this page, I can see that there's courses that are being recommended, because I'm interested in marketing, and graphic design, and web design. I can also choose to browse other creative topics. Now, we'll dive into this later, but if you're actually trying to refresh your skills, or find skills that relate to your current job, you can also see courses that people watch that have your similar job title. Now, because I work in education, a lot of the courses that are being delivered here for my particular LinkedIn profile, have to do with education. We're gonna dive a lot further into how to use these skills, and how to find the right skills for the right content later in this course, but for right now, we're already off to a great start!
