Lynda.com is changing to LinkedIn Learning.
This summer, Lynda.com will merge into its parent company LinkedIn to become LinkedIn Learning. With LinkedIn Learning, you will receive more personalized recommendations for Lynda.com content, suggested courses and learning paths that are more closely aligned with your career goals, and educational interests.
What does this mean for you?
- When you go to LinkedIn Learning for Libraries, you will need to log into your LinkedIn account or create one, then enter your library card number and PIN. Your history—learning paths saved, playlists compiled, certificates earned—should transfer over.
- Without a LinkedIn account, you will not be able to reach Lynda.com content, including any certificates you've acquired or courses you've completed.
For users who do not wish to create a LinkedIn account, we strongly recommended downloading and saving completed certificates ASAP. Users can find those in the menu at the top right of the Lynda.com page.
While the transition to LinkedIn Learning is expected to begin in July, we have not received specific dates scheduled for individual libraries. However, two days before the transition, users should see a banner notification on the Lynda.com portal after logging in.
Still have questions? Give us a call at 419.259.5200 or download and review Lynda.com's Patron Login Journey to LinkedIn Learning for more information and a step-by-step visual of the process.
