The Digital Degree™ by Eazl – support by

A huge shout out to my friends  & for launching a new exciting project Digital Degree.

The Digital Degree is the Most Affordable Degree in the World

The Digital Degree™ is a collection of 50 fun, interactive, video-based learning experiences that collectively offer students a well-rounded undergraduate education. These courses cover topics like statistics, humanities, life sciences, economics, reading, and writing. Every Digital Degree™ student’s experience includes:

  • Dedicated Mentorship: Students will be graded and receive feedback from a dedicated mentor throughout their learning experience. This enables them to receive personalized guidance as they complete their degree.
  • Lifetime Access: Students have lifetime access to their courses. Each Digital Degree™ course includes bite-sized lectures, interviews with experts and practitioners, and practice activities. Many of these learning experiences also include templates, step-by-step guides, and sample collections. So, if a graduate needs to re-visit their statistics work in 12 years, they can go back to their class, take the lectures they needs, and apply it at work.
  • Building Relevant Skills and a Work Portfolio: In order to earn credit, each student must complete work projects related to each course taken. To make these work projects relevant to the modern world, Eazl has built the Eazl Employability Team, a group of professionals who help calibrate these projects so that students get take relevant skills into their careers.
  • Learning from a Network of Experts: Because students are learning in a video-based environment, they’re able to learn from experts and practitioners with diverse backgrounds, geographies, and worldviews in each course rather than one single professor. This gives students a variety of viewpoints rather than that of a single person.
  • Becoming Digital Natives: Students work with and collaborate through essential cloud-based tools tools like the Google Apps for Work and social media platforms.
  • Engaging Learning Experiences: Eazl has won awards for outstanding production quality. This focus on making the learning experiences attract and retain student’s attention has resulted in a 70% increase in engagement with students (see Bálint’s review below).

 

Thanks for a  bag, I will surely wear it when I record the 2019 edition of our Udemy course. Good luck & much love from sLOVEnia!

[💡6 Tips] How to Optimise Your New Linkedin Profile This Weekend?

It is finally here – a shiny new interface for the majority of LinkedIn’s over 467 million users. While it may look similar to Facebook now, make no mistake, LinkedIn is and remains a powerful professional platform. It is your online CV and one of your first hits on Google, so with a new interface, there comes an excellent opportunity make your LinkedIn profile shine.

6 Essential LinkedIn Profile Power-Ups: Less than 30min to implement them

Say goodbye to endless scrolling, LinkedIn profiles have just become much more concise. To make the best first impression possible, you should focus your attention on optimizing 6 profile elements (as displayed on the desktop).

I. Upload a New Background Photo

A background photo gives a great first impression. Recommended image size to upload is 1535 x 768 px. If your company has a social selling strategy, you should ping your designer to make you a shiny new background photo ( grab one here for free).

II. Posts (Articles) and Activity Section

The best thing you can do to drive more traffic to your LinkedIn profile is to publish posts. I am still getting leads from a post that I published a year ago. Lead generation power of LinkedIn posts is pure gold. But not everyone wants to create content. And that is ok because the new LinkedIn interface features 6 of the posts that you recently shared or liked on LinkedIn. Because your LinkedIn activity is now very visible in your profile, you probably want to commit to interact only with the content that you would be proudly associated with.

III. Your Headline is Incredibly Important

LinkedIn automatically generates a headline from your current job title and company. However, a headline could and should be much more impactful. Fascinating headlines focus on what can you do for clients, KPIs and listing professional expertise. Want to get visual? Include an emoji 😉. They will surely help your profile stand out when you are about to be discovered through LinkedIn search. Get more inspiration here.

IV. The summary just become much shorter- 2 lines left!

LinkedIn summary used to be a shortcut for listing your key career achievements, display relevant rich media (such as websites, presentations, publications, videos) and give your profile viewers a comprehensive introduction to who you are and what you aim to achieve. This section got reduced at the new LinkedIn profile. Of course, people can still click “see more”, but honestly, 95% of your LinkedIn viewers will not do that. For this reason, you should focus on writing a great 2-liner and optimizing your current job title instead.

V. Your Current Job Stands Out

It matters more than ever. Practically it is the only part of your new profile when rich media is displayed at the first glitz without “see more” camouflage. Make sure you include industry keywords, KPIs, rich media, a brief description of a company and your role. I love sourcing from Dr Robert Cialdini and 6 principles of persuasion when searching for LinkedIn profile optimization ideas. Check out Mitja Korelc’s profile. He works as Senior Account Executive for CEE and Adriatic regions at LinkedIn in Dublin. Needless to emphasize, he has a rockstar Linkedin profile.

VI. Featured Skills and Endorsements

At your new LinkedIn profile, only 3 skills are displayed. Since skills endorsements are the legacy of our 10+ years LinkedIn presence and you might not want to be known for your teamwork and Microsoft Office skills at your current job, you should revamp the order in which skills are displayed on LinkedIn. You can change the displayed skills by following these steps to keep a relevance of your professional profiling. Your works mates will probably gladly endorse you for newly displayed skills order if you ask them nicely 😉

PRO Tips: Social selling, Prospects Data Enrichment and Professional Branding

If you got into the LinkedIn optimisation vibe, you might want to optimise your profile to social selling and personal branding as well.

Here is a Trello board to guide you through the most important steps.

Happy LEO and the new LinkedIn profile

Maja Voje

p.s. LEO (LinkedIn Engine Optimisation) is still the king. Your profile will still be discovered by industry keywords, job title, location, and industry. You will still get enormous networking benefits by being a member of the most influential LinkedIn groups. Posting LinkedIn articles (LinkedIn Pulse) and Slideshare presentation will drive a lot of organic traffic to your profile.
