Integrate LinkedIn into imc Learning Suite

LinkedIn Learning is one of the largest online providers of professional development. More than 15.000 courses on business, technology and creativity from proven experts are available in its e-learning platform. Now it is possible to integrate LinkedIn Learning into imc Learning Suite.

After the implementation of a Learning Management System, the procurement of learning content is the next big step towards a digital learning strategy. However, creating high-quality courses takes time from experts who often have no experience in creating online learning content. A sensible solution is, as far as possible, to use learning content from external providers. But accessing different platforms for corporate learning often creates confusing learning scenarios and makes learning management more difficult.

 

Therefore we have worked on a simpler solution and now provide an interface between imc Learning Suite and LinkedIn Learning. Now, our customers can easily integrate the high-quality and diverse LinkedIn Learning offers directly into their blended learning strategy via the imc Learning Suite.

 

When content library providers such as LinkedIn Learning are integrated into learning management systems, all content isusually loaded into the system in catalog structures. In the initial application scenarios with customers, we have evaluated that this amount of content is often too confusing and reduce userfriendliness. In addition to the desire for an extensive library, another was created: support in selection and the possibilityof integrating content into existing company-relevant learning scenarios.

 

On the basis of these findings, the integration of LinkedinLearning was realised via an efficient search function with import function, which, in addition to providing content via catalogues, also allows the integration into all conceivable learning management scenarios.
