Editor’s note: Microsoft, who own LinkedIn, look like they are turning the screw on corporate learning. They now have a suite of productivity tools and are turning LinkedIn into a more open learning platform. As a learning platform, LinkedIn looks very useful for employees as it will provide you with options based on your skills and experience. By opening up the platform to other content providers, its offer becomes more compelling. Definitely a vendor worth keeping an eye on.

The message here is: involve your employees in developing the tech they need to do their jobs better.
