SAN FRANCISCO \u2014 LinkedIn finally pulled the Lynda.com library of more than 9,000 online training courses into its main service and gave the content the prominence it's been lacking. The move comes nearly 18 months ago after the social network acquired the training site for $1.5 billion. LinkedIn Learning is now available to all of LinkedIn\u2019s premium subscribers. The company also plans to make the service available to enterprises, so they can give their employees access to a variety of courses and training materials.\n\u201cThe dream is to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce,\u201d said LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner during a press event at the company\u2019s new San Francisco offices. \u201cThe idea that you can acquire skills once and have a job for life, those days are over.\u201dLinkedIn Learning is one of a few new offerings designed to create more value for LinkedIn\u2019s users, he said.\n[ Related: Why LinkedIn spent big on Lynda.com ]\nThe company also revealed a redesigned desktop site that more closely mirrors the experience of the company\u2019s mobile app. The new site, which won\u2019t be available until later this year, is less cluttered, and it makes it easier for you to access LinkedIn\u2019s most popular features, according to Amy Parnell, the company\u2019s senior director of user experience design. \u201cWe found with our mobile experience, when you clean up the interface, when you focus on the things that matter, we help people get the most value of LinkedIn, and this gets them more engaged on the platform,\u201d she said.\nLinkedIn\u2019s desktop experience now more like mobile\nAt a time when mobile, and more specifically a \u201cmobile-first\u201d approach, is crucial, desktop sites don\u2019t get the same level of attention as apps for the smaller screen. LinkedIn released a completely redesigned look for its mobile app last December, and the company has since seen a 30 percent year-over-year increase in unique mobile active users, as well as a 40 percent increase in all content viewed on the site and a 240 percent rise in message volume.\n[ Related: What\u2019s next for LinkedIn? ]\nA handful of companies, including Bertelsmann, Box, Ellie Mae, NBCUniversal and Viacom, got early access to LinkedIn Learning to pilot administrative controls designed to help businesses manage internal professional development. The enterprise-focused product won\u2019t be released until later this year, according to LinkedIn, and it did not specify any pricing details.\nWeiner said LinkedIn Learning, the desktop redesign and other recent improvements were \u201cin the works long before we were in discussions with Microsoft.\u201d Microsoft acquired LinkedIn for $26.2 billion in June, but Weiner didn\u2019t discuss details because the deal is still pending final approval.\n\u201cWhen we build great products \u2026 people get jobs, they start companies, they connect,\u201d said Ryan Roslansky, vice president of global consumer product at LinkedIn.\nLinkedIn currently has 450 million users in at least 200 countries, and 106 million people use the professional social network at least once a month, according to the company.
