LinkedIn to Recognize Online Learning Certificates

A LINK TO THE CLASS: LinkedIn lets you list college classes on your profile, and now you can brag about online classes as well.

Upon completing a course, students will receive a link to a certification field pre-populated with the course details that will be added on their LinkedIn profiles.
