Welcome to LinkedIn Learning with Lynda.com Content! In 2015 LinkedIn purchased Lynda.com and is finally migrating Baylor-based Lynda.com accounts into the LinkedIn Learning framework. During the migration, your existing, Baylor-based Lynda.com account will be unavailable. After your account migration is complete, you will receive an email that will instruct you how to access the new LinkedIn Learning resources! Visit this page for a sneak preview of the new platform while you await your account activation.
All employees of Baylor University have unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning, a library of thousands of courses featuring instructional videos on the latest software and many other topics. LinkedIn Learning is designed for all skill levels and is available for viewing on your computer or mobile device. Once the migration is complete, we will post instructions here on how new users can access LinkedIn Learning.
1. What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn recently acquired Lynda.com. If you were familiar with Lynda.com, you can expect the same content in LinkedIn Learning that you experienced with Lynda.com. LinkedIn Learning provides online courses for a wide variety of technology and disciplines for beginner to advanced learners with videos that are closed captioned, searchable and time coded for increased comprehension. New courses are added each week, and there is an app version for mobile devices.
2. How can I learn more about the conversion from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning?
See these FAQs provided by LinkedIn.
3. What courses are offered through LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning offers a wide variety of courses related to business, creative, and technology applications. Once logged into LinkedIn Learning, you can browse through the course listings or search for specific topics.
4. How do I get an account?
At this time, accounts are only available to faculty staff. Please do not use an account until you are ready to take a course. If you never used Lynda.com, go to www.linkedin.com/learning. Enter your Baylor email address and your password. On the next screen, click on "Sign in with your organization account". This will take you to the Baylor's single-sign-on page. Log in with your BearID and password. If you have a existing LinkedIn account you can choose to link your account with your learning, but you are not required to do so.
5. What if I already have a LinkedIn account?
If you already have a LinkedIn account, you can use the same username and password for your existing account and then choose whether or not you want to link your learning to your LinkedIn profile.
6. What is a collection?
A collection is a group of related courses. Use collections to set and manage learning goals. For example, if you want to master Photoshop, you might create a collection of Photoshop and design courses to help you reach that goal. When you select a course, you have the option of adding it to an existing collection or creating a new collection.
