A LINK TO THE CLASS: LinkedIn lets you list college classes on your profile, and now you can brag about online classes as well. Last week the company announced its Direct-to-Profile Certifications pilot program with a host of big-name online learning companies, including the MOOC triumvirate (Coursera, edX and Udacity), lynda.com, Pearson and Udemy. 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.
