Suggestion on how to list Treehouse on Linkedin?

I want to put my TeamTreehouse on my Linkedin profile but frankly I don't want it listed above my Bachelor's degree. I love Treehouse but I've not yet spent 4 hard years on it. Is there another way to add then education? It's been incredibly valuable to me but this is more of a howto question. It IS EDUCATION but LinkedIn does not give people the option to change the order of things or what shows up in the top part. It's possible I'm wrong on the Linkedin thing as I'm not a very experienced user.

To arrange your education how you want:

1) Go to "Edit Profile

2) Under your education tab, you'll see the schools listed first. Hover your mouse over the school name and it will be highlighted with different options just to the right of the school name. The very last option is an up/down arrow. It will allow you to drag the window up/down to reorder your education listings.

Hey Neil

I thought the same, its tricky to list TeamTreeHouse under education.

So I decided to added TeamTreeHouse as one of the websites under my contact info section.

When adding a new website if you choose 'Other' it will let you name the site, in this case TeamTreeHouse :)

Thank you! That's exactly what I'll do. I wish Linked would fix some things and I've added my voice on 1 below to Linkedin and I'll do the same for 2:

  1. No Markdown support. Seriously? I was surprised by that one or maybe I'm wrong?
  2. Why can't we choose what order to list our education? It makes choices that I don't like, such as listing Treehouse under websites. It's education but I'm not ready to list first yet.
  3. Now it's not obvious how to add more than 3 websites to the top of LInkedin. I'm frustrated enough now to actually be tempted to cancel my Linkedin completely but I know that's stupid.

BTW, Best answer! thanks. I wish it were possible to set one in general but I'm guessing due to the misc nature of the general forum, it's too open to point abuse amongst friends or whatever.

Matt, that worked. I was able to re-order, thus solving the problem. See Matt's solution above if others are having this same problem with ordering education on LinkedIn.
