LinkedIn Learning & Skillsoft Percipio Learning Assets
From James Valley
Scott and Jim have the pleasure of talking with Dr. Jonathan Barkand, DAU's Learning Systems Project Manager, responsible for the addition of over 50,000 LinkedIn and Skillsoft Percipio learning assets to the DAU asset inventory - this is available to all our DoD Acquisition Workforce.
DoD personnel across the Department of Defense (not just the DoD Acquisition Workforce) will be able to register for both LinkedIn Learning and Skillsoft Percipio. Skillsoft Percipio provides traditional courses and access to books and book summaries. Skillsoft Percipio also provides assets in new ways (called “modalities”) through the virtual campus. These modalities include audio books and practice labs to allow users to try out their new software skills as well as access to live events. Skillsoft Percipio also offers “Collections,” related learning assets compiled on one landing page to enable users to explore different learning options related to the same topic.
LinkedIn Learning provides include guides, courses, books, and videos and provide a new opportunity to expand skills, take new training.
Both LinkedIn Learning and Percipio allow the learner to 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.
