Faculty & Staff

Say Hello to LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is an excellent tool for supplementing your instruction. Instead of using valuable class time teaching basic skills and software, assign these easy-to-use online videos. In addition to helping your students succeed, LinkedIn Learning is a powerful resource for you to build new skills and stay up-to-date on current trends.

Integrate LinkedIn Learning Courses and Videos into Canvas Assignments

With recent updates to the LinkedIn Learning interface, faculty can now embed LinkedIn Learning videos and courses into their Canvas assignments. Faculty can then take advantage of the grade book in Canvas to follow student completion of the assignment. Learn how to use this powerful new teaching tool in Canvas.

Assign Collections and Learning Paths by Requesting Curator Role Access

As Faculty and Staff, you can recommend and share custom learning paths with your students and colleagues. LinkedIn Learning also provides learning paths to recommend or share that can be tailored to the unique needs of your learners.

You must be granted Curator access before you can share LinkedIn Learning courses/links inside of your Canvas courses. Contact the OIT HelpDesk online or by calling 865-974-9900 and request your LinkedIn Learning account be upgraded to Curator. Once you are granted the Curator role, you’ll receive an email with instructions on different ways to share content.
