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.

Editor’s note: LinkedIn has analysed its own data from the last five years to see what skills are on the rise. It uses US data but nevertheless is quite eye-opening around demand for less technical skills.

Editor’s note: Will the ability to create and share videos in LinkedIn just add to the showboating noise of the platform? Or will it see the creation and sharing of genuinely useful content? Time will tell . . .
