Learning Paths provide a recommended list of courses related to a specific professional topic or career. Once you have completed a Learning Path you will be able to share this accomplishment on your LinkedIn account.
- [Instructor] Another useful feature to help you find relevant content on the LinkedIn Learning platform is the learning path. Whereas a LinkedIn Learning course gives you focused instruction on a specific topic, learning paths will provide several courses focused around a larger topic. Some examples of learning paths are Become a Web Developer, Master Microsoft Excel, or Improve Your Presentation Skills. Now, there are tons of learning paths that are available on LinkedIn Learning. Let's take a look at how we can find one. I'm going to go up to the search bar up at the top and type in instructional design. I'll click here. And now, on the left-hand side, instead of filtering this by courses, I'm going to filter it by learning paths. When I do, you'll see here that there are three of them related to instructional design. The first one Become an Instructional Designer, Become an Instructional Developer, Become an L&D Professional. I'll click on the top one here, and it brings us to that learning path. Now, in here, it gives you an in-depth learning experience around this desired skill. They'll include courses, videos from different instructors, all geared towards helping you develop a specific set of skills. Here, you'll see that inside of this, it gives us the name as well as a description. It tells us what we will master, what we'll learn, what we'll practice. Over on the right it tells us the amount of content we have. So here it's 14 hours of content and 11 items. We can click on Start. And down below that, it gives us a timeline here of the courses or videos that we need to watch in order to complete this learning path. Here we have The Neuroscience of Learning, Instructional Design Essentials, and so on. Now, once you've completed a learning path, you'll be able to share this accomplishment on your LinkedIn profile. Doing this is a great way to let potential or current employers and your whole professional network know that you've dedicated significant time to learning and gaining new skills in a specific area.
