LinkedIn Learning announces the enrichment of its educational offer with the addition of Harvard Business Publishing content. Also, it adds courses, tutorials, and texts from various educational platforms.

When LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com, this educational portal was perceived as a compendium of multimedia and business tutorials. Now, with a robust offer of courses, in a platform driven by artificial intelligence, it aims to be the most relevant educational solution for companies and professionals seeking constant updating.

LinkedIn Learning currently has more than 13,000 courses and works with a panel interface that, with the help of machine learning algorithms, offers skills-based learning recommendations.
