When searching for content on LinkedIn Learning, you can utilize the library icon to quickly access content from the Business, Creative, or Technology libraries. You can also use the search bar to search for relevant content.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at how you can search for content in the LinkedIn Learning Library. At the top, in the navigation bar, we have a couple options. The first is to click on the Library tab on the left hand side. This will bring up another menu, separating the content by the different libraries. I'll click on the Library tab, and from here, we have the Business library, the Creative library, as well as the Technology library. Now you may have another one below this if your company or organization houses their own content on LinkedIn Learning.
For now, I'll go up to the Business library and then to the right you see we have Subjects, Software, as well as Learning Paths. In this case, I want to look for something on Microsoft Excel. Well that happens to be here underneath software, so I'm going to go and click on that. This will bring me to the Microsoft Excel page showing any content on Microsoft Excel. Now, you can see here that I have 5,810 results for Excel. That's too many, so I need to filter this down, and I can do that by using the filters on the left hand side.
First, I can filter it by Courses, Videos or Learning Paths. In this case, I only want to look for courses. When I click on this, I can see that there are 175 different courses just on Microsoft Excel. Now let's say I'm a beginner, so I want to click on the beginner level. This narrows it down to 35. You have ones like Excel 2016 Essential Training, Learning Excel Data Analysis and more. Now you can also filter it by other things such as the amount of time it takes to complete, software, continuing education units, and more.
So once you filter this down, you will narrow down your results to find exactly what it is you're looking for. Now another place that we can find content is by using the search bar. So up here at the top, I'm going to click here and we can type in either a skill, a subject, a software, whatever it is that you're looking for. In this case, I'm going to type in a big topic, I'll type in design, and hit return, and as you can see it brings up 2,494 results for design.
That's way too many, and this is already after I've clicked on courses, so this is only courses that it's showing. So I need to narrow it down further by maybe clicking on Beginner, We still have 1,029. Now, this might be an example of where you need to narrow down your search, and get more specific in the search bar. Let's say for instance that I'm actually looking for design things related to the software InDesign. I'll type in the name of that software and hit Enter, and as you can see, now there are 40 results.
We have InDesign Quick Start, InDesign 2019 Essential Training, and a much more focused search here. So there are a ton of courses in the LinkedIn Learning Library with more being added all of the time. Having these features can help you find exactly what you're looking for. Whether you have a specific course that you're looking for, or if you just want to learn more about a topic, take advantage of the Library tab and the search bar to help you find content in the Library.
