Our Move to LinkedIn Learning - FAQs
Lynda.com is now part of LinkedIn. LinkedIn have their own learning platform called LinkedIn Learning, and it will contain all of the Lynda.com content (and much more). Here are answers to some of the questions that have already been raised:
|When will this happen?||The move will happen in early August. We will let you know the exact date, nearer the time.|
|Why are we moving to LinkedIn Learning?||Lynda.com is now owned by LinkedIn. LinkedIn has its own learning platform - LinkedIn Learning - and their strategy is to combine the two. Lynda.com will not be available to the University after November 2019, and so we need to move to LinkedIn Learning.|
|Do I need to do anything?||No, the move will happen automatically. When you first access the new platform, you will go through a simple registration process, similar to that for Lynda.com.|
|Will I need a LinkedIn account?||No. You will still access the online courses through your Single Sign On (SSO) credentials|
|Will I be able to use my LinkedIn account to access the University's LinkedIn Learning platform?||No. You will need to access the online courses through your Single Sign On (SSO) credentials. There will be no link between any LinkedIn account you have and your University access to LinkedIn Learning.|
|Will my details and activities be shared with LinkedIn||No. The University is using the LinkedIn Learning platform in its 'blocked' mode. This means there is no sharing of your data with LinkedIn profiles. We strongly recommend that you do not provide additional personal details in your LinkedIn Learning profile.|
|Will you give me more details||
Yes. Nearer the time we will let you know the date of the move and where you can go to get access to the new platform. There will be a period when you will be unable to access either Lynda.com or LinkedIn Learning while the transition is carried out. This is likely to be just a few hours.
Note: LinkedIn Learning may send emails about the impending move to any email address you have provided in the Lynda.com platform. You can ignore those emails - we will send information about the move to your University email account.
|What about my playlists?||If you have created any playlists in Lynda.com, LinkedIn tell us that these should transfer across to LinkedIn Learning, but only be available until the end of November 2019, when the Lynda.com platform is decommissioned. You should recreate your playlists within LinkedIn Learning.|
|Will I still have mobile access to the courses?||Yes, although if you use an app for this, you may need to download a revised version. We will give more details when we have them.|
|Who is Molly?||The IT Learning Centre will bring together its two online learning platforms, LinkedIn Learning and the IT Learning Portfolio, under one name - Molly. You will hear much more about Molly in the coming weeks.|
