LinkedIn introduces LinkedIn Learning Hub in an effort to upgrade people’s skills

LinkedIn Learning Hub

LinkedIn is planning to launch LinkedIn Learning Hub to help organizations upgrade and build their skills.

Professional networking job platform LinkedIn will soon launch their skill-building platform called LinkedIn Learning Hub during the second half of this calendar year. They are currently in beta with many customers around the world, and when the product is generally available, corporate LinkedIn Learning Pro customers will be automatically upgraded to Learning Hub at no additional charge for at least a year.

The learning hub has been created keeping in mind that various organizations need a learning solution to upgrade and build one’s skills. LinkedIn Learning Hub has all of the capabilities of a traditional LXP, aggregating all of a company’s learning resources, but it’s so much more. It draws on data and insights from LinkedIn’s Skills Graph, the world’s most comprehensive skills taxonomy with 36K+ skills, 24M+ job postings, and the largest professional network of 740M+ members, empowering customers with richer skill development insights, personalized content, and community-based learning.

Here are the critical capabilities of the LinkedIn Learning Hub. 

Personalized content makes it easier for learners to build the right skills: Learning Hub brings all of an organization’s learning resources together—including LinkedIn Learning content, partner content, an organization’s custom-created content, and content from popular LMSs, including SuccessFactors, Cornerstone, and Saba. Learning Hub’s content partners include Pluralsight, O’Reilly, Harvard ManageMentor, getAbstract, edX, and many more on the way. Taken together, it surfaces AI-driven recommendations to individual learners based on their learning activity and broader LinkedIn insights.

Community-based learning connects learners to people with who they can learn and build new skills with: By helping learners easily connect with their colleagues, peers, and experts—including LinkedIn Learning instructors—learning gets locked in. This includes native integrations with employee experience platforms such as Microsoft Viva. Companies can also easily select internal subject matter experts or champions to curate customized learning paths and collections across all content sources. 

Skill development insights inform L&D strategies with data and insights: On the admin dashboard, L&D pros can identify skills gaps, pin key skills and track trends over time, benchmark themselves against similar companies, get insights on skills interest and learning activity, and track skill trends across content sources. Because Learning Hub maps content across all sources with the LinkedIn taxonomy honed over LinkedIn’s 18-year history it uncovers rich insights that will help L&D pros measure the impact of learning more precisely than ever before.
