Much of our lives moves online thanks to the COVID-19 lockdowns and upskilling courses are no different, according to LinkedIn.

In fact, new research has found that Aussies spent 1.1 million hours learning in 2022.

And now, with many workers looking to switch things up in their careers, even more are trying to boost their career through upskilling.

LinkedIn research found Aussies are moving away from remote style working courses and moving towards soft skills, project management and communication.

LinkedIn senior director, APAC talent and learning, Adam Gregory said more than 7 million users globally watched learning courses so far this year, more than double the audience from last year.

“With the job market in flux, this shows a huge appetite for learning new skills to stand out from the crowd, whether that's taking on a new skill or returning to basics to give more confidence when attempting to ask for a promotion or nail a job interview,” Gregory said.

“Businesses can also use LinkedIn Learning to ensure their teams are motivated, participating in personal development and ultimately help to future-proof their organisation.”

Here are the top 20 online courses that LinkedIn users have been taking.
