Starting August 1, members of the Defense Acquisition Workforce will gain free access to more than 8,000 LinkedIn Learning (LIL) assets through the DAU virtual campus.
These learning assets include guides, courses, books, and videos and provide a new opportunity to expand skills, take new training and earn Continuous Learning Points (CLPs). Training includes a variety of topics and can be accessed from the “Enroll in Online Training” button on the virtual campus’s landing page (must be logged in to view). Users can search the virtual campus either by topic or filter by provider to see LinkedIn Learning courses.
Dr. Jonathan Barkand, DAU Learning Systems Project Manager, highlighted that the new courses will integrate seamlessly into the existing environment. He explained that after someone "registers for a course, the course goes to their active transcript.” From then on, one can find the course in their active transcript until completion, just like any other course in the virtual campus.
LinkedIn Learning provides a wide range of options, including courses on business, technology and leadership skills. “You can find whatever topic you’re interested in,” said Barkand. The courses are “provided free of charge” to the acquisition workforce, Barkand said, and noted the courses provide course certificates that allow learners to earn CLPs upon completion.
“Stay tuned,” Barkand said. “LinkedIn Learning is the first easy step to make more training opportunities available." The next content expansion to the virtual campus will include more technical training in a variety of formats (books, audiobooks, book summaries, live events, and practice labs).
