Say Hello to LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is a great 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.

Collections and Learning Paths

As Faculty and Staff, you can recommend and share custom learning paths and collections 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 sub-admin access before you can share LinkedIn Learning courses/links inside of your Canvas courses. Contact the HelpDesk to submit your request.
