Business is one of the most well-stocked sections of the LinkedIn Learning site, with a huge range of courses to choose from. Course topics in this area include courses such as ‘Solving Business Problems’ and ‘Writing Better Business Emails’, and there are also courses suitable for those interested in opening their own business, such as the well-regarded ‘Creating A Business Plan’.
Development and Coding
As with business, there are a wealth of courses available for anyone who wishes to learn to code (or enhance their existing knowledge) with LinkedIn Learning. Courses focus on a range of pre-existing knowledge – with the highest volume of courses falling into the ‘Intermediate’ category – and also different programming languages, with PHP, Python, and C++ all featuring heavily.
The majority of the finance-related courses focus on business-related topics, such as learning to use software like Quickbooks for business purposes or the popular ‘Excel For Corporate Finances’ course. However, for those interested in learning more about finance from a personal perspective, courses such as ‘Managing Your Personal Finance’ and ‘Managing Your Personal Investments’ could definitely be worth considering.
The photography course options at LinkedIn Learning are extensive, with plenty of different topics covered to ensure that most people interested in the subject should be able to find an option that works for them. There are courses that focus on cameras and how they work – such as ‘Photography Foundations: Lenses’ – as well as in-depth courses that focus on specific types of photography, with options such as ‘Learning Headshot Photography’.
Many of the marketing courses found on LinkedIn Learning focus on digital or social media marketing, with the likes of ‘Marketing on Pinterest’ and ‘Social Media Video for Business and Marketing’ good examples of this. However, LinkedIn Learning also offers courses that focus more on marketing from a generalised perspective, such as ‘Building A Marketing Strategy’ and ‘Marketing To Millennials’.
While many – or perhaps even the majority – of the courses on LinkedIn Learning are focused towards professional development, there are a number of great courses that can be useful for personal development too. Examples include ‘Developing Your Emotional Intelligence’, ‘Become A Thought Leader’ and ‘Improve Your Problem-Solving Skills’, but there are many more to choose from, with courses available across all three levels – Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.
