The previous post in this series explored LinkedIn endorsements and recommendations. Chris and Dan used those features to locate a potential consultant with particular skills and considered recent refinements to those features. We also explore the new LinkedIn Learning site made possible by the acquisition of Lynda.com. In this post, we explore how endorsements and recommendations might help LinkedIn earn back the roughly $300,000 that they paid for each of Lynda.com's 5000 courses.
