Ohioans can get free, unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) with a library card from one of Ohio’s 251 public library systems.
What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning is an on-demand library of instructional videos covering the latest business, technology and creative skills. Many of the courses are directly tied to careers on Ohio’s In Demand Jobs list (more than 230 careers!). The video courses are taught by industry experts and are designed for any skill level. With more than 16,000 courses (in seven different languages) and personalized recommendations, you can discover, complete, and track courses related to your field and interests.
LinkedIn Learning also offers Learning Paths that help bridge the gap between the career you want and the skills you need. Learning Paths provide you with a customized set of training classes to help you achieve your professional and personal goals.
