Compare course length estimates against actual time spent.

LinkedIn Learning courses include estimated duration times so people can plan around their learning needs. But these estimates are only helpful if they are accurate.

Use Watershed to evaluate estimated completion times against your learners' actual time to complete a course. Use this analysis to identify any content with a significant variation in estimated versus actual time to complete for further review. These insights also help learners set realistic expectations around how long courses take to finish.

Measure learning’s impact on the business.

Tracking completions is great, but is the learning having a tangible impact on helping people progress and addressing the organization's needs?

Find out by combining your LinkedIn Learning completion data with an employee survey, job performance, and business metric data.

Drill down through your organization hierarchy with HRIS integration.

Use Watershed to combine HRIS data with LinkedIn Learning data to gain deeper analytics and insights that explore how different parts of your organization use LinkedIn Learning. This means you can:

  • Present managers with filtered views that only show data about their people, including lists of people who haven’t completed the required training.
  • Compare LinkedIn Learning usage by department to identify parts of the organization where uptake is low.
  • Control data permissions to ensure people can only see the data they are permitted to see.

How does Watershed work with LinkedIn Learning?

The Watershed-Linkedin Learning connector brings live and historical data into Watershed. You can analyze this data in reports and dashboards alongside data from other sources or on its own.

What data is included?

Data captured by LinkedIn Learning and imported into Watershed includes:

  • Course metadata—such as course length, number of items in the course, category and subcategory, instructor name, link to the course thumbnail, and more.
  • Completion of videos within courses.
  • Course start, progress, and completion. This includes data on enrollment date, whether the course is assigned and by whom, and time taken to complete.

While our implementation team will take care of all of the details when importing your Linkedin Learning data into our learning record store, you may find this eGuide helpful:
