Some LiL Best Practices

  • Provide Clear instructions regarding expectations around student use of LinkedIn Learning. 
  • Avoid overloading students with excessive LiL supplement materials. 
  • Encourage students to not watch entire courses in one sitting (unless it's so good they would like to finish it).
  • Encourage students to resist keeping the information learned to themselves, but to share with others what they have learned. 
  • Encourage students to give themselves challenges or incorporate discovery and play. 
  • Encourage students to watch courses multiple times.

There are two, possibly three options to use the LinkedIn Learning Platform with your students. Whatever option you choose, make sure that you incorporate active learning strategies as you never want students to just sit and watch videos one after the other without engaging in some kind of learning by doing activity.

Flipped Classroom –  In this case, you have the students watch the videos on their own time, and you use the class time to do hands-on workshops, quizzes and other forms of instruction that apply what is learned from the video content.

Flipping the Classroom - Duration: 2m 28s
When not to flip - Duration: 2m 38s
 
 

Blended Learning Classroom –  This would be a combination of both direct face to face instruction while using online materials or instruction. The videos are short, ranging from 2 to 5 minutes. In the blended mode you could have the student watch a few at a time and provide a small demonstration or activity that supports and assesses what they have learned.

Self-Paced Supplementary Resource –  Provide the resource to students to learn during their own time.
