Need to Upskill or Reskill? It’s Easy to Learn Virtually

Learning Virtually – Knowledge is power. You don’t know what you don’t know, so engage in continuous lifelong learning to improve yourself and your skill sets.

In April 2015, Linkedin purchased a platform called and then subsequently rolled it into what is now called LinkedIn Learning. As of April 2018, there is no additional charge for the learning platform for those who have the following paid accounts: 1) Premier Career, 2) Premier Business, 3) Executive, 4) Sales Navigator Professional, or 5) Recruiter Lite. You will notice the Learning icon in the top right hand part of your profile page and can access it there.

You can learn about software, business, technology, or creative skills to reach your future career goals. When you complete certain courses or any of the over 70 learning paths, LinkedIn will allow you to download the certificates of completion on your profile.

Although there are many many other learning platforms out there, this is a pretty good list (that we have updated since publishing) and it will get you started on the road to self-improvement!

Educational technology and online learning have evolved from the days when I first heard it called “distance learning.”

According to PR Newswire, EdTech was at $85B in 2021, with growth expectations to $230B by 2028.

Colleges and universities offer virtual options, but there are many other 24/7/365 online learning opportunities for children and adults.

The 100 e-learning resources below are focused on adult learning, and you might discover platforms you have never heard of before to feed your inner “lifelong learner.”

Happy learning!
