Online Courses (LinkedIn Learning)
LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) is widely known as one of the best online training libraries. It offers tens of thousands of expert-led top-quality instructional videos on more than 16,000 courses for all skill levels that play on PCs, Macs and a variety of mobile devices 24/7. The university has entered a license agreement with LinkedIn Learning that allows CityU staff and students to have access to a resource of updated and innovative online training content across academic disciplines to support their professional development and as curriculum resources. Its catalogue of courses covers a variety of topics, including those on computing, animation, accounting, architecture, business, engineering, etc. which are curricula offered in CityU.
As these online courses are broken into bite-size tutorials (each 5-15 minutes long), users can select whichever topic they wish to learn instead of taking the entire course. LinkedIn Learning also provides closed captioning (subtitles) and searchable, time-coded transcripts which makes it easy for learners to follow through the content of the entire movie.
