Transition from Lynda to Linkedin Learning

Lynda.com has merged with LinkedIn to become LinkedIn Learning. Now all the course content previously completed on lynda.com are accessible through LinkedIn Learning. Current IC Students, Faculty and Staff have access now that all Lynda subscriptions have been transitioned to LinkedIn Learning. The following guide will walk you through the transition with IC account.

 

  • If you were a Lynda.com user prior to this transition, you should have received an email similar to the one in the image. To get started, Click the [Activate account now] link in the email.

 

  • You can also access LinkedIn Learning by going to apps.ithaca.edu and scrolling down the alphabetical list to click on "LinkedIn Learning - Online learning and skill development"
 Note:  When clicking on the "Activate Now" you will be given the option to create or link to your personal LinkedIn account.  A basic LinkedIn account is required to access content on LinkedIn Learning. If you do not have an account, you will be guided through the process of building a new one. You can link a personal LinkedIn account at any time, but in order to disassociate the accounts, you will need to contact LinkedIn Learning Support. LinkedIn Learning Customer Support can be reached directly by chat or submitting a case here: https://www.linkedin.com/help/learning/ask/lil-gen

4. Additional Questions

What if I pay for Linkedin Premium, and Linkedin Learning comes with my subscription?
As a member of the Ithaca College Organization, you will have access to LinkedIn Learning at no additional cost. You can connect your personal LinkedIn account at any time, and your learning content will be merged and synced together. If you would like to take advantage of the other benefits of LinkedIn Learning, you will need to keep your current subscription active since Ithaca College's licensing does not extend to LinkedIn Premium.

If I contact LinkedIn Learning to dissassociate my accounts, what happens to my learning history?
Your Learning history will persist with the ithaca College account you had created. If/when you reconnect your personal LinkedIn Learning account with the account provided to you by Ithaca College, your learning history will be re-merged and synchronised.
