  • Select the Save & Publish button at the bottom of the page.

linkedin learning collections and learning paths

Collections are an assembly of content, like a playlist, where videos and complete courses from all areas of LinkedIn Learning into one place. Individually videos or sections within a course can be added to a collection. Creating learning collections is a great way to categorize content you’re interested in learning.

Learning paths will indicate a specific series of courses and videos that you’d like your learner to take in sequence. They are designed to help your students acquire a specific skill set or knowledge in a particular area. You can create learning paths for your students, or you can use one of the many already available on LinkedIn Learning. Some examples of learning paths already available are:
