On Monday, February 22, 2021 Lynda.com was converted to LinkedIn Learning for Libraries.
You now have access to the following content and features:
- Over 16,000 courses on a wide variety of topics in business, software, technology, and creative skills.
- Courses are offered in 7 different languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Mandarin (Chinese), and Japanese.
- Expert Instructors with real-world experience.
- 60+ new courses added each week!
- An updated, easier-to-use interface with the option to customize what courses to display on your dashboard.
- Your previous course history from Lynda.com.
- Authentication/log in via library card and PIN without the need for a LinkedIn profile.
Below are some FAQs concerning the new site:
If I already have a Lynda.com account through the Library, will my Lynda.com history migrate over to LinkedIn Learning?
Your history was migrated to the new LinkedIn Learning account. If you use the same library card number and PIN as you did to log into Lynda.com, your history and progress will be available on LinkedIn Learning. Previous Certificates of Completion will also be available but they will be in the form of a plain document without any personal identifiable information such as your name.
Will there be a mobile app?
Yes, but it is not ready yet. The vendor is working towards making the LinkedIn Learning mobile application also work for Library patrons. Until this is ready, you can instead explore all of the content using your mobile web browser.
How will I sign into LinkedIn Learning?
You will need to sign in with your library card number and PIN.
Note: If you lose your library card and obtain a new replacement card, and therefore you have a changed library card number, LinkedIn Learning cannot merge your old and new accounts. You will henceforth sign in with your replacement card number. Your original LinkedIn account’s learning history record will not be available under your new LinkedIn account.
