    We get linkedin learning at work for free and I still don't use it. These days there are just so many sources of information and these Lynda videos are usually a bit old.

    • Yeah, talk about it.
      These resources are making University courses oyt if date.

      By the time you complete a degree in that 3-5yr period, the advancement have already superceded your $20-50k piece of expensive paper.

        Good luck getting a good job with a free online course while everyone else has degrees

        • IF you demo your newly learned skills, &
          those skills are what Employers wants…

          You'll be OK.

          If you got those skills on your own
          initiative, maybe even better.

          Just be strong-willed enough to get
          fair compensation for your skill…

          ie, don't let them play the "Yes,
          we'll offer you a position, but -
          since you don't have a [real] M S
          degree [from a Uni], we'll have 2
          observe your performance, here,
          before your salary will match a
          competitor with Uni-earned M S"


          LinkedIn / Free Learning-year BEGINS 1st June

          • @IVI: You won’t sniff an offer because you won’t get past the first stage of the application to showcase what you’ve learned , as the first thing listed under requirements for any great job in a big firm is a bachelors degree . If it’s a small company then more likely. But a large firm , forget it

      • Uni courses went out of date a long time ago. But Uni degrees are the 2nd biggest export by GDP, so don't rock the boat!?! Be good, and don't change anything, we're busy over here taking the money!

        But the fact remains that a good book, and an aptitude to learn from your author is the cheapest golden learning path to take. And with so many online resources, the world's your oyster. No rent-seekers, just you, and where you want to get to.

        Of course it's vital to have the core learning in any discipline, but taking 3-4 years after school is a seriously antiquated approach. Most of that time gets wasted at the bar.

        Trouble is, so many live in the past and think everyone else can just make do with carrying on the same way they grew up and got a start in life.

        E.g. don't break university degrees down to the bite-size chunks people need, and can chew away at throughout their career. But in the vacuum that developed, industry fills with commercial certifications and private course offerings. Filling the gap. And all this takes retains teachers of the specialised disciplines in corporate businesses, locking them out of the universities orbit entirely. Which makes the universities even less relevant.

        So instead of using computer networking for education, transparency, and collaboration, we only see value in using it for tracking and surveillance. Which is ironic as we are hardly deciding any of this with a vision of the future society we want. It seems we have to go somewhere we don't want to go, to meet the robots doing our jobs, before deciding we don't like them, or they us.

        So grab your 'one time only' 'free' for a limited time MS account, tell them all your secrets, let them correlate your soul with the decades of telemetry they already have on you, and then let them manage your learning, qualificationscareer from here on in. What job opportunities you see. How muchlittle you can expect to be paid. Once they sharesell everything to your potential employers and third party services, marketers, FinTechs, Insurers, world+dogs, they might occasionally, the employers who will choose the most qualified and experienced person for the job.

        With any luck that'll be after the point you are hoping to hear back, and before they charge you for the next subscription's worth of opportunities. After which you find that someone else got the job because they lied, or had a fatter resume.

        Will it be better than the guys at Uni that outsource exams and assignments? Don't worry, their AI will decide, and arbitrate against the person of least consequence. Maybe that's why we don't need Universities anymore, they just aren't commoditising students fast enough, and the bricks and mortar costs cannot be shored up by people that don't have it in them to fight being undercut at all angles.

        And how long before the robots have better certifications and experience than most of the humans? They'll have the same accounts we do, but every now and then will train their AI in such a way to get an edge, and register multiple accounts, as many humans already do…


        PS. How much do auda.org.au share in from this 'deal'? A commission for every sign-up? It wouldn't be the the first time they've sold data to world+dog, or even the registry itself. And they still charge double for the wretched .au domain namespace!

          But you can buy your
          choice of "wretched"
          AU-domain from any1
          you like.

      I used it for a few business courses (which are less likely to become outdated) when I started at my current job and found they were quite good – high quality with plenty of resources. Another positive is that when you complete the course, you can download a certificate and add the course to your LinkedIn profile.

      • +3

        We recently got it at our business also and think the quality is quite decent. Yes there are some courses pretty much duplicated eg Microsoft365 but it is sometimes good to see the same thing from multiple angles eg the coding way vs button clicking method.

    Nice find. You can also get access to linked in learning via your local library website. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/397100 Just do a search for "(town name) library lynda login"

  • “If the Company is wound up each member undertakes to contribute to the assets of the Company up to an amount not exceeding $10 for payment of the debts and liabilities of the Company including the costs of the winding up. This undertaking continues for one year after a person ceases to be a member.“ - auDA constitution.

    auDA, the toothless tiger, can take a flying jump. Why they allow the monetisation of domain names by loopholes is beyond me. Allowing companies to stockpile domains they have no practical need for, just to sell for extortionate prices, is disgusting. To bypass "cyber squatting" all they need is a single link to another page related to the name of the domain, and they're allowed to mark it for sale.

    "Our client wants to sell their domain…" yeah bullshit you have a "client". Tossers.

    Take a look at domainnames.com.au, if you make an offer to "buy" one of their domain names, you have to agree to this:
    By submitting this offer, I confirm that neither I, nor my organisation claims any legal right to the domain name listed above. If I am inquiring on behalf of another entity, I confirm that this entity does not claim any legal right to the above domain name and that I am authorised by such entity to make this legally binding offer.

    Pick a random domain for sale, qualitykitchens.com.au, auDA accept this as an adequate use of a domain.


    • So, you don't want people to Buy+Sell Land & Homes…?

      IF not, why the PIVOT?

      What happens when folks can freely Buy+Sell these
      can adversely affect real people (aekta maeniskor)
      much more powerfully than in the world of Dom.Names:

      It can force up prices (eg, in Vancouver, Canada) &
      keep folk in rentals, when they'd do better owning.

    Got the link for the access. Somehow the Android app does not recognise the subscription granted by auda (I have an existing LinkedIn profile, attached this sub to it), need to use the browser on the phone. Not a big deal though.
