The Question and Answer feature is available on some courses on the LinkedIn Learning platform and allows you to ask and respond to questions. Course instructors also take part in the conversation helping to create a professional learning community.
- [Instructor] Another new feature on the LinkedIn Learning platform is the question and answer tab, which appears in some courses. This feature allows users to ask questions within the course. Then, the instructor or other participants can respond to those questions. This feature was highly recommended by users, and is one that should help to create a community of learners who can help respond to questions and help one another learn. Let's take a look at an example of this. I'm currently on the course, Graphic Design Tips and Tricks Weekly, by John McWade.
Now, if I go over to the side navigation bar, up at the top, you'll notice here a tab for Q and A. Next to it, it has a number 18, meaning that there are 18 questions in this course. So here, if I click on it, you can see here that it says, ask here to share with learners, experts and others. You can click on Ask, and start entering it in. You can also share that on LinkedIn, if you'd like, and then below, you'll see where people have either asked questions or made comments within this course. Below here, you can see that the instructor, in this case, John McWade, has responded to some of these questions, so this is a neat feature that can really help to create a community of learners.
Now, like I said, it's a new feature, and it's currently only available on some courses in the library, however, it's a feature that continues to scale and will be added to many more courses in the near future. Keep an eye out for this feature as it continues to evolve.
