LinkedIn Learning

On August 12, Information Technology Services will be upgrading Lynda.com accounts to LinkedIn Learning in order to take advantage of the newly-named service’s features and capability to work with LinkedIn to support your learning needs. Although you will notice changes to the longtime learning and professional development platform - primarily in the user interface - many of the features that are popular with Lynda.com users will remain intact. You do not need to take any action during the transition and you will not lose any information associated with your account as all admin and learner data including content, account settings, and histories will carry over to LinkedIn Learning. Faculty and staff will continue to have the opportunity to create custom playlists that can be shared as classroom resources in LATTE or directly link to specific videos within LinkedIn Learning.
