LinkedIn Learning for Higher Education

November 23, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


– The practice of job searching hasn’t changed much. Networking, referrals,
demonstrating skills and so forth. But the way we do it has. Today, it can all happen in one place. And that’s LinkedIn. It connects the world’s professionals, and creates economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. And LinkedIn Learning
combines our high quality expert-led learning content
with this LinkedIn data to make those professionals
more successful. – I’ve been work in higher
education for over ten years. And I’ve never seen a tool that provides what LinkedIn Learning can. It reveals in-demand skills using data, AI and machine learning. We’re able to deliver
relevant, customized, micro-learning content that prepares learners for the future. It’s a strategic complement
to an institution’s curricula. – [Wes Pompe] LinkedIn becomes a hub for students, alumni, faculty and staff. They can learn, connect, engage and strengthen their professional brand. – All of us were students once, too. Which is why we’re so passionate
about student success. We wanna see them advancing their skills, and building their professional brand. Employers are going
online to find new talent. Students need to create
an online presence early to give them a competitive advantage. So let’s take a look,
and see how this works. – [Wes Pompe] First, a
student creates a profile. It can be a great place to interact with peers and professors. – [Javier Labrador]
Throughout her education, LinkedIn Learning supplements
classroom learning. And online course recommendations help her continuously develop
micro-skills on her own. – [Lindsey Mussack] She
posts course completions and class projects to
her LinkedIn profile. It becomes an online portfolio to showcase her academic career. – [Wes Pompe] Her network
grows as she interacts with the broader community,
engages with thought leaders, and comments on posts and articles. – [Javier Labrador] As
graduation approaches, and she finds a field of interest, alumni connections help
her with internship, and job opportunities in that field. – [Lindsey Mussack] The learning
insights and connections empower her to enter the workforce. – [Wes Pompe] As your
students and staff interact with the LinkedIn ecosystem,
we provide student outcome data that perfectly complements your institutions own internal data. It’s a mutually beneficial opportunity. Looking at both datasets together, we’re able to close skills
gaps, enhance outcomes, and foster life-long learning. Ultimately, differentiating
your institution for current and future students. – Together, we’re able
to invest in the growth and development of individuals. To empower students to build
their professional brand, and prepare them for
the careers of tomorrow. – To help faculty, staff, and
alumni elevate their careers. – We’re here to partner with you. Let’s guide life-long
learners to be more productive and successful in the global workforce.
