LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) is a leading online learning tool that offers thousands of high-quality video courses in software, business, and creative skills for helping Bryn Mawr community members achieve personal and professional goals and meet just-in time training needs.
If you are accessing LinkedIn Learning for a Bryn Mawr program, the organizers may have sent you an invitation email. If so, click Activate LinkedIn Learning now in that email to set up your account.
All current Bryn Mawr students, faculty and staff can set up and access their LinkedIn Learning account at any time:
- Go to LinkedIn Learning
- Click Sign In
- Enter your Bryn Mawr College email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and click Continue
- Click Continue to Bryn Mawr College
- Enter your Bryn Mawr College email address (email@example.com) and password and follow the Duo prompts to log in
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!
Your activity on LinkedIn Learning (your name and courses viewed or completed) can be seen by the College. However, even if you connect your LinkedIn account to your LinkedIn Learning account, the College will not be able to see your activity on LinkedIn.
