Introduction

Formerly known as Lynda.com, LinkedIn Learning is a large library of professional-skills-related videos, courses and entire learning paths created by industry experts. Students and staff members can learn anything from graphic design and programming, to leadership and interpersonal skills.

LinkedIn Leaning can be used as a core teaching tool or just a valuable resource which students can use to learn more useful skills to get them career-ready. There is also a wealth of information for educators to improve their teaching skills, with courses on topics like game-based learning, delivering online teaching and more.

The service is available now to all staff and students via single sign on at https://www.linkedin.com/learning/
