LinkedIn Learning

We have partnered with LinkedIn Learning to give you full, free, unlimited access to thousands of high quality online courses and video tutorials written by industry experts.

The courses on LinkedIn Learning cover many things, including using a wide range of software, and personal development skills like education, public speaking, and employability.

Accessing LinkedIn Learning

You can access LinkedIn Learning via the LinkedIn Learning home page or using the LinkedIn Learning iOS app or Android app.

An easy way to get an account set up is to go to the LinkedIn website, choose to ‘Sign In’, ‘Sign in with your organization account’, and follow the instructions.

Using LinkedIn Learning

Searching LinkedIn Learning

Once logged in, use the search box at the top to search for topics, or click on Library to access more subjects. Once you have searched, you can narrow down your list by skill level, or other filters.

Watching courses and videos

Click on any course to begin watching. Watch through the entire course or click on individual videos to just watch specific sections. Within each course is an overview, a transcript, and if relevant, exercise files to work through as you watch the course.

Claim your certificates

Once you have watched an entire course, you will get a certificate which you can print off or place on your LinkedIn profile.

Case studies

We caught up with two members of staff from the Computer Science department to discuss how they use LinkedIn Learning (or as it was then, Lynda.com) to enhance their own skills and the learning experience of their students.

Chris Nicholas is a Computer Science Research Assistant. He has used Lynda.com extensively to improve his knowledge of software development.

Oladotun Omosebi is a Computer Science Doctoral Tutor. He has used LinkedIn Learning with his students to help them improve their skills in using various software.
