What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning merges the best parts of Lynda.com and LinkedIn, providing additional benefits for users, including:
- Unlimited access to thousands of courses in business, technology, programming, professional development and creative topics
- Personalized content recommendations based on your skills, job role(s), and interests
- Collections that you can administer, organize, share, and assign to other learners
- Convenient access through your web browser or on-the-go with the LinkedIn Learning Mobile App
Am I required to connect a LinkedIn Learning profile to my LinkedIn account?
No, this is optional. If desired, choose the "Continue without LinkedIn Learning" option pictured above. Should you leave the university for any reason, connecting your LinkedIn account will not prevent you from using your LinkedIn account or make any changes to your account.
While optional, connecting your profile results in a more personalized learning experience that includes special course recommendations based on your job title, skills, and industry.
Users can add LinkedIn Learning course certificates to their connected LinkedIn account.
As a first time LinkedIn Learning user, do I need to do anything when I sign in?
The first time you sign in, you will step through an easy process to create a LinkedIn Learning profile that personalizes the default video content based on your skills and interests. If you already have a LinkedIn account, you can add your LinkedIn Learning profile to it. If not, you can simply create a LinkedIn Learning account that uses your LMU credentials.
