Day#29: LinkedIn Learning – learn what you want

I started learning on LinkedIn Learning while studying web authoring in the second quarter of my program. It’s one of the resources provided by the college, which I assume, included in tuition and fees that I paid. 

I learned about CSS concepts, responsive design, and PHP. While learning about that, I experimented on CodePen(I talked about it here) at the same time to gain better understanding.

Last quarter I struggled at studying Java through zyBook and didn’t understand it well. So, I decided to strengthen Java fundamentals through this platform in this vacation quarter. It’s the best time to take advantage of the resource already available for me.

I’m glad about my decision so far because the course I take is so much more approachable than zyBook. This is the course I’m taking: Learning Java.

LinkedIn Learning is a great resource for learning skills in the technology field, whether web development, backend languages, cloud computing and many more. Here are reasons why you will like this platform:

Broad topics – courses for high-demand, essential skills are available. The areas you can expect to learn from this platform are business, creative, and technology. Below are topics from the technology area:

Achievable time frame – most courses have duration range from 2-6 hours, which is practical for users to arrange time that fits their schedule

Short-medium video duration – similar to the previous point, each video in a module lasts about 2-10 minutes. I think this helps encourage learners to stay till the end of the video and doesn’t take much effort to continue studying the next video. 

Note taking feature – this is a very cool feature. You can take note at any point you want while watching the video. The note will appear once you press enter – it will also show a minute mark of the video. Then you can come back and review your note along with rewatching the video only the part you need at any time.

What’s your experience with LinkedIn Learning so far? Any favorite course to share?

This is day#29 post and a part of my commitment to spend 30 minutes a day for 30 days straight to write about software development tools that I love. My goal is to build my daily writing habit and connect to more people. This project is inspired by @dickiebush ’s “Ship 30 for 30” Atomic Essays.
