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.

As well as the challenges facing L&D, this research looks at how learning teams are delivering and evaluating learning interventions.
