The past few weeks have brought a lot of changes in the workplace. With the coronavirus pandemic, many employees are now working from home.
Teams are no longer in the same room or building to meet and discuss project plans. Employees can’t walk to the water cooler or break room to catch up on the latest company news.
Instead, employees and teams will embrace remote working.
Which can be a steep learning curve for many workers, when they’ve never worked remotely in the past.
Or have rarely used virtual communication tools.
I’ve heard from many people asking how they can quickly learn virtual communication tools, like Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
And how to best manage their time while working at home.
Which is why I’m so glad to learn about LinkedIn Learning’s remote working free courses offer.
Remote Working: Setting Yourself and Your Teams Up for Success
Announced last week, LinkedIn Learning has made their 16 courses on remote working and virtual communication tools free for everyone.
If you’re not aware, LinkedIn Learning is an online portal offering video courses taught by industry experts in software, creative, and business skills.
I’ve taken multiple courses on LinkedIn Learning to improve my skills in business, WordPress, web development, user experience, accessibility, and more.
The courses were well-taught with useful information I was able to apply to my projects immediately.
What You’ll Learn
What I like about the 16 courses in LinkedIn Learning’s remote working and virtual communication tools learning path: they offer both recommendations for remote working as well as how-to’s for using the virtual tools.
If you take all 16 courses, you’ll find 13 hours of expert instructions and recommendations for
- Best practices for working remotely
- Managing your time while working at home
- Productivity tips
- Leading from a distance
- Managing virtual teams
- Microsoft Teams tips and tricks
- Learning WebEx
- Learning Zoom
- Many more topics
Get Started with LinkedIn Learning Remote Working Courses
Once you’ve logged in, select the Learning tab (I only confirmed the steps on desktop since I don’t use their app) and navigate to their Remote Working learning path.
Choose the course you want to take and get started learning how to be more productive working remotely.
Changing to remote work is a big shift for many workers. It will take time to get your routine set up and find the tools that work best for you and your team.
I’m grateful to LinkedIn Learning for making their 16 courses available to everyone for free. I’ve been working remotely for over 20 years, but I’m always learning something new to make it easier for me to do my work.
I hope you find the LinkedIn Learning remote working and virtual communication tools courses helpful.
