This year, Lynda.com upgraded to LinkedIn Learning for Library. As at 16 February 2021, all individual learning activity and history from Lynda.com is being transferred to LinkedIn Learning.

With LinkedIn Learning, you will be able to:

  • Receive relevant recommendations: Have access to content trending in your fields of interest.

  • Ask questions: LinkedIn Learning allows you to ask questions and receive responses from the instructor and other learners.

  • Continue where you left off: You will have access to your Lynda.com learning history and certifications of completion after the upgrade.

  • Learn in your own language: As well as the original Lynda.com content in English, there are now courses available in French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin, and Portuguese.

To access LinkedIn Learning for Library, you will still require your library card and PIN/password. A LinkedIn profile is not required.

See answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the upgrade from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning.

LinkedIn Learning users can intake information in various forms: audio, visual and written.

  • Content is well formatted with headings and lists so you can use your screen reader’s quick navigation keys to find your way. 

  • LinkedIn Learning offers closed captions for most course videos. To turn on captions, select the course you wish to view. At the bottom right of the player window, click the 'CC' button. The captions will now appear as the video plays.

  • The speed adjust button allows you to play the video at a pace that suits your learning best.

  • With the 'Skip back 10 seconds' button, you can get a quick recap of any concept you may have missed.
