April 28, 2017

At LinkedIn, we have a saying: #AlwaysBeLearning. It’s never too late to learn a new skill or to sharpen the ones you have. So in this week’s product roundup, we’re going to take a deeper dive into some of the new updates for learning on LinkedIn.

Feeling the burn(out)? Lucky for you, LinkedIn Learning just launched a new library of courses in partnership with Thrive Global to help busy professionals like you learn methods for combating the stress that so often comes with our ‘always-on’ lifestyles. Best of all? You can learn from business icon Arianna Huffington, as well as guest trainers like Kobe Bryant and Warby Parker CEO Dave Gilboa. Take a look at the six courses available now, which teach you how to unplug, the value of sleep and how giving can lead to success.

Care for a bite? Of learning that is. We’ve started rolling out a new bite-size format of LinkedIn Learning courses that makes it easy to learn on-the-go or when you’re waiting for that meeting to start, with courses lasting 5 minutes or less. You’ll start to see your “Daily Bites” course recommendations,  based on your current role, on the righthand side of your LinkedIn Feed as well as on LinkedIn Learning.
