LinkedIn Learning available to CU employees and students this September
Professional learning will expand at CU this September. The online learning and professional development platform Lynda.com, currently used by University of Colorado faculty and staff, will upgrade to LinkedIn Learning.
The upgrade also extends to all CU students, meaning faculty members will be able to share courses and resources with their classes. This change will enable students to continuously improve their career development through courses, videos and more.
LinkedIn Learning will retain popular Lynda.com features while delivering a more personalized learning experience, helping employees learn new skills or refine current skills with greater ease. Despite the name change, all employees will still be able to connect to professional growth opportunities through their employee portal (my.cu.edu).
LinkedIn Learning offers a more intuitive interface and relevant content recommendations while maintaining Lynda.com's ever-growing course library, transcripts and exercise files. Whether you want to understand Microsoft Excel basics or master the fundamentals of project management, LinkedIn Learning has the resources you need. Don't have time to complete a course in one sitting? You can bookmark videos and key course chapters to pick up where you left off or come back to relevant information.
You will also have the option to connect your CU LinkedIn Learning account to your personal profile on LinkedIn. If you choose to link your accounts, it will provide a more personalized experience with specialized course recommendations based on your job title, skills and industry. You’ll receive digital course completion badges that can be added to your profile as well as ways to discover relevant learning content through your LinkedIn feed. Set up your LinkedIn profile by following these instructions.
