What URL do I use to access the LinkedIn Learning training materials?

For now, you may continue using https://lynda.uchicago.edu to access the log in link.

Do I need to create a LinkedIn Learning account? Can I link my personal LinkedIn account?

When you log in for the first time, you will have the option to connect your LinkedIn profile OR create a separate Learning account during activation. If you choose to connect your LinkedIn profile, you’ll receive additional benefits such as personalized recommendations for your skills and position, as well as what’s trending on LinkedIn Learning based on LinkedIn data. This will help us give you a learning experience that’s tailor made for your needs.

 

Do I have to log out of LinkedIn Learning when I am finished viewing the training materials?

Logging out is encouraged if you are using a public or shared computer. Because LinkedIn Learning uses the University’s single sign-on (SSO), you must quit the browser completely to end your SSO session. Please note that the University’s SSO also requires you to have Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) set up, as well.

Can I use LinkedIn Learning on mobile devices?

An app is available for iOS devices including the iPhone and iPad, as well as an Android app. You may also use a web browser to access LinkedIn Learning on your mobile device. Read more about the iOS app or the Android app.

Can I access my training history?

Yes. You have access to your Learning History under your profile menu.

Can I obtain Certificates of Completion for completed courses?

Yes. When you finish a course by watching every tutorial in the course, you can receive a certificate of completion. You may print the certificate, e-mail it, or embed your certificate in a blog post or web page. These are the best ways to ensure authenticity of the certificate.
