LinkedIn Learning

Ever wanted to brush up on your Python for data science? Or perhaps take a course in business analytics or financial forecasting? Maybe you could use help with a specific, technical question related to MATLAB, and YouTube isn't giving you what you need. Or, perhaps you are simply looking for help with personal and professional growth in any number or areas like time management and organization techniques. LinkedIn learning may be exactly what you are looking for. 

LinkedIn Learning, provided through the library, "offers thousands of courses taught by industry experts in software, creative, and business skills".  You can choose to take a full course, or just a short segment focused on your needs. If you choose to take a course, your progress will be saved and you can work through at your own pace.

Some examples of courses in popular areas can be found below:

Browse all Business Topics
Browse all Technology Topics
Browse all Creative Topics


Check out the video below to see all the features offered through LinkedIn Learning, and how to get the most of our your course!
