Using LinkedIn Learning at uOttawa

Lynda.com is now LinkedIn Learning

On August 7, Lynda.com becomes LinkedIn Learning

On August 7, 2019, the University of Ottawa upgraded from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning has the same content as Lynda.com.

Professors who have Lynda.com videos embedded in Brightspace will need to update their links to point toward LinkedIn Learning videos after August 7.

If you have questions, please contact Mish Boutet, Digital Literacy Librarian (mboutet@uottawa.ca).

About LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning logo

Current uOttawa students, faculty and staff now have free, unlimited access to over 7,000 online courses related to business, media and technology through LinkedIn Learning, a self-service training site.

All postsecondary students in Ontario have free access to LinkedIn Learning as part of the Government of Ontario's Career KickStart strategy. Building on this opportunity, eCampusOntario, a not-for-profit corporation funded by the Government of Ontario, successfully negotiated with LinkedIn Learning to secure the same level of access for faculty and staff as students at publicly funded colleges and universities in Ontario.

LinkedIn Learning users get:

  • Over 7,000 online courses to help you learn software, creative, IT, and business skills.
  • Personalized recommendations to explore the most in-demand skills based on their experience.
  • To learn from industry leaders, all in one place.
  • Convenient learning accessible from any desktop or mobile device.
  • Helpful resources like quizzes and exercise files to reinforce learning.
  • Just-in-time training, as in-class courses may not be offered when you need them.
  • Unlimited access to online courses available 24x7.
