Summary

Learning is transitioning from a 20th century approach reliant on rote learning to a 21st century curriculum focused on collaboration, critical reasoning and creative problem solving. LinkedIn + Lynda.com aim to provide today's learners with the skills they need to obtain the jobs that are & will be vs. the jobs that once were. The proposition is to connect people to opportunity to close the competency skill gap. LinkedIn & Lynda.com are tackling this problem between what our education systems produce & what employers demand through big data analysis and the creation of vetted, curated high-quality video content. It's support for both higher education and businesses to adapt to change in learning.
