Did you know that all AUT students get a free LinkedIn Learning account?
LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) is a database of learning resources designed for a wide range of professionals. Its video courses have a particularly strong focus on software training, personal skills, and data analysis techniques.
Once you’ve logged in with your AUT email and password (more instructions here), you’ll have access to over 16,000 video courses on thousands of topics and in 7 languages. Because the platform is not specifically designed for academic researchers, you might have to do a little digging to find the courses & resources that are most relevant to your research. Fortunately, we’ve done some of the legwork.
Here’s a selection of videos and training materials that are most suitable for PG researchers. Some refer to business practices, but many of the principles carry over well into our academic work.
There are also lots of options if you need to learn about particular technologies or software in the course of your research. Here are just a few topics that LinkedIn Learning can help with.
This is just a sample; so have a go exploring LinkedIn Learning and see what might be applicable to you!
