LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning logo - those exact words in the color blue. LinkedIn Learning is an American massive open online course provider. It provides video courses taught by industry experts in software, creative, and business skills. It is a subsidiary of LinkedIn. All the courses on LinkedIn fall into 3 categories: Business, Creative, and Technology

All enrolled students, faculty and staff have access to LinkedIn Learning. This resource will provide in-demand technology and soft skills with over 16,000 online courses.

LinkedIn Learning replaces Hoonuit, formerly Atomic Learning, as our resource for on-demand learning.

Faculty, staff and students can learn at their own pace and link certificates of completion to their LinkedIn profile, if desired.

Faculty can also use the Blackboard integration for LinkedIn Learning to complement and support curricula with just-in-time, adaptive learning for students.   

LinkedIn certificates will help students stand out in a crowded job market and staff will appreciate developing their skills according to their own learning path. Users can learn anytime, on desktop or mobile, online or off.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How can I get technical help with my LinkedIn Learning account?

LinkedIn Learning provides several support options for learners. Our support helps resolve any account, course or any other learner issues. You can reach out to these channels for support at the LinkedIn Learning Help Desk website.

If I activate without a LinkedIn profile but later want to connect it, can I do so? Or if I connected my account and wish to disconnect?

Of course. Simply go to the “me” button on the top right of your LinkedIn Learning account, then go to “settings” and click connect my profile. For more info, check out this help article.

Can I control what learning information is displayed on my LinkedIn profile?

Yes, your LinkedIn Learning course completions won't show on your LinkedIn profile unless you choose to add a completed course. This can also be removed at any time so you have full control.

If I connect my Learning account to my LinkedIn profile, what can my employer/institution have access to?

Even if you choose to connect your LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn won’t share your personal information (such as job search history, connection request, InMails, etc.) with the organization providing you access to learning; this organization will only have access to your LinkedIn Learning course viewings.
