LinkedIn Learning Upgrade

Lynda.com was Upgraded to LinkedIn Learning on Monday, July 15, 2019

 

LinkedIn Learning Stacked LogoWe are excited to announce that Lynda.com, Kent State's free learning and development platform, was upgraded to LinkedIn Learning on Monday, July 15, 2019! As you may know, LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com, and has combined the best parts of both platforms into LinkedIn Learning to further the mission of helping professionals be better at what they do.

LinkedIn Learning offers a new, easy-to-use interface, and a range of new features and content while still providing the same Lynda.com content. It is an online training library that has over 13,000 courses covering business, technology, and creative topics. LinkedIn Learning is designed for all levels of learners. These videos are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can even be viewed on your mobile device.

 

Please be aware that on the day of the upgrade Lynda.com will be unavailable for the entire day while the transition to LinkedIn Learning takes place.

 

What to Expect

You can expect continuous updates and enhancements to the product and its learning content. Some LinkedIn Learning features will seem familiar as they have kept the most quintessential aspects of Lynda.com. Other features are new and exclusive to LinkedIn Learning.

One big change from Lynda to LinkedIn Learning (LiL) is that people can no longer share playlists that they have created unless they are a sub-admin of the system and created it under Collections. They can still share individual videos, but they will need to be made sub-admin in order to share a playlist (now known as Collections).

Here is how to create a collection, once you have admin permissions:

  • Sign in to LiL and click on “Go to Admin” on the upper right
  • Click on “Content” in the menu at the top of the screen
  • Click on “Collections” just below the top menu
  • Click on “Create new”
  • Once you have created your collection and added the videos, you can click on ellipses (More actions) and recommend or get a shareable link.
