LinkedIn Learning Online Training

Lynda to LinkedIn Logo

Have you heard the news? Lynda.com is now LinkedIn Learning

Lynda is retiring! After 23 years of hard work bringing you the courses and videos you have grown to love, Lynda has decided to retire and utilize LinkedIn Learning to keep her content legacy alive.

UHD students, faculty, and staff can log in to LinkedIn Learning for unlimited free access to a vast online library of instructional videos designed to help anyone learn business, technology, and creative skills to achieve personal and business goals.  LinkedIn Learning offers engaging, top-quality courses taught by recognized industry experts with thousands of courses and 255,000+ video tutorials that can be accessed across desktop and mobile devices.

What to look forward to:

  • The Lynda.com content you know and love
  • New easy-to-use user interface
  • Personalized content recommendations
  • Improved enhancements for admins and learners

FAQs:

Q: Am I required to create a LinkedIn account to use LinkedIn Learning?

A: No! While creating or linking a LinkedIn account is an option for using LinkedIn Learning, the SSO will allow current UHD Faculty, Staff, or Students to access LinkedIn Learning without having a LinkedIn account.

Q: What is the benefit to creating or linking a LinkedIn account to LinkedIn Learning?

A: By creating a new account or linking an existing LinkedIn account to LinkedIn Learning you will automatically receive credit for your completed courses right in your LinkedIn profile. In addition, when you leave UHD, any work you have completed in LinkedIn Learning will follow you in your LinkedIn profile. The SSO does not allow you to carry your LinkedIn Learning course info with you after you leave UHD.

Q: Will the Lynda courses I am watching or have watched still be available to view?

A: Yes! LinkedIn Learning combines all of the current Lynda courseware with LinkedIn's substantial library of Business and Professional courses. In addition LinkedIn Learning is constantly revising and adding to its library of courses in real time!

Q: Can I make use of LinkedIn Learning in my Blackboard courses, like I did with Lynda?

A: Yes! LinkedIn Learning will have the same LTI functionality that Lynda had, allowing you to embed LinkedIn Learning courses directly into your Blackboard course shell. As an added benefit you can now request a Custom Learning Path be created in LinkedIn Learning so you can gather all of the courses or modules from several different LinkedIn Learning courses into one curated course that is easily shareable with students!
