Do I need a personal LinkedIn account to use LinkedIn Learning?

No! A LinkedIn account is not required to use your College-provided LinkedIn Learning account. When you activate your LinkedIn Learning account, it will strongly encourage you at several junctures to link your Bryn Mawr College LinkedIn Learning account to your personal LinkedIn account (and to create one if you don’t already have one). This is not necessary.

Should I connect my personal LinkedIn account to my Bryn Mawr College LinkedIn Learning account?

For the simplest experience maintaining your privacy settings, LITS recommends not linking your LinkedIn Learning account to a personal LinkedIn account upon activation. If you change your mind later, you have the option to connect your accounts when you’re signed into LinkedIn Learning. If you choose to do this, Bryn Mawr College will not have access to any private activity from your personal LinkedIn account. See LinkedIn Learning privacy details here, and while you’re at it, update your LinkedIn privacy settings, too!
