Winners in the 2019 LinkedIn Learning Watch and Win Contest

LinkedIn LearningWe are really excited about how the SMU campus has adopted LinkedIn Learning during our LinkedIn Learning Watch and Win Contest. During the contest period, which ran from January 14, 2019, to February 14, 2019, we had 413 users log in to view over 860 hours of training. Those users watched 1494 courses and 117 were completed.

For the contest, users needed to watch at least one complete video on LinkedIn Learning. The SMU community took on the challenge to heart. Over 7650 videos were viewed – 87 percent in their entirety! How users accessed those videos was interesting. LinkedIn Learning Usage by OSMost users used Windows, followed by macOS, but almost 20% watched LinkedIn Learning from their mobile device.

We learned that our users are looking mostly at courses related to teaching/training and development, front-end development, business intelligence/spreadsheets, programming languages, and photography. The most popular courses during the contest period were Learning Git and GitHub, followed by The Neuroscience of Learning, Learning Study Skills, Cert Prep: Excel 2016 Microsoft Office Specialist, and Organizational Learning and Development. One of the more surprising courses we found on the list was Rock Guitar Lessons: Teach Yourself to Play. Who knew?
