This article reviews what LinkedIn Learning is and how to access it under Bryn Mawr's license.
What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) is a leading online learning tool that offers thousands of high-quality video courses in software, business, and creative skills for helping Bryn Mawr community members achieve personal and professional goals and meet just-in time training needs.
Access LinkedIn Learning
If you are accessing LinkedIn Learning for a Bryn Mawr program, the organizers may have sent you an invitation email. If so, click Activate LinkedIn Learning now in that email to set up your account.
Otherwise, all current Bryn Mawr students, faculty and staff can set up and access their LinkedIn Learning account at any time:
- Go to LinkedIn Learning.
- Click Sign In.
- Enter your Bryn Mawr College email address (email@example.com) and click Continue.
- Click Continue to Bryn Mawr College.
- Enter your Bryn Mawr College email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and password and follow the Duo prompts to log in.
Do I need a personal LinkedIn account?
No. A LinkedIn account is not required to use your College-provided LinkedIn Learning account. When you activate your LinkedIn Learning account, it will strongly encourage you at several junctures to link your Bryn Mawr College LinkedIn Learning account to your personal LinkedIn account (and to create one if you don’t already have one). This is not necessary.
Should I connect my personal LinkedIn account?
For the simplest experience maintaining your privacy settings, LITS recommends not linking your LinkedIn Learning account to a personal LinkedIn account upon activation. If you change your mind later, you have the option to connect your accounts when you’re signed into LinkedIn Learning. If you choose to do this, Bryn Mawr College will not have access to any private activity from your personal LinkedIn account.
Caution: Some users who have merged their LinkedIn Learning and LinkedIn accounts have experienced issues signing into LinkedIn Learning with their Bryn Mawr credentials. If you encounter this issue, please contact the Help Desk. For best assistance, provide screenshots of any error messages you see.
If you have any additional questions or problems, don't hesitate to reach out to the Help Desk!
