LinkedIn announced a new Lyda.com channel for the Roku platform, touting it as a “way to transform your living room into a learning workshop.” The channel gives viewers access to 4,000 courses.
“Whether it’s to learn new business skills, creative, or technical skills you can now master them at your leisure on the big screen (popcorn not included),” a spokesperson for LinkedIn tells WebProNews. “Or use your TV as an extra screen, freeing up your laptop or desktop to actively work alongside our instructional videos.”
The channel gives both members and non-members a new way to access content and keeps continuity across devices so members can begin a course on one device and pick up where they left off on another.
LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com back in April, and has since become an important part of its business. It was the source of $41 million of revenue for the company in Q3.
Lynda.com has over 4,000 courses with new ones being added each day. It features over 150,000 videos with industry expert instructors like David Allen, Deke McClelland, and Ben Long.
The company says it will a lot more Lynda.com news in the coming year.
