Skills Empowerment Scheme - LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning (E-resources of HKBU Library)

LinkedIn Learning is an excellent channel for HKBU students to learn different skills from its resources bank with ample interactive materials. It also helps create learning incentives for students who can showcase the achievement certificates and badges earned in their profile on this world-leading networking platform. It is hoped that introducing and promoting LinkedIn Learning to students can create a self-learning atmosphere in the HKBU community.

Theme-based Learning Paths

The Career Centre (CC) has designed some theme-based learning paths according to the needs of different students. In general, there are two categories: Career Preparation and Skills Empowerment.
