This summer, Lynda.com’s parent company LinkedIn will be absorbing the content into a new platform called LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning will be integrated with other LinkedIn features, and therefore will require Lynda.com users to have a LinkedIn account. The transition is expected to start in late July, with most libraries transitioning in August and September.
What Patrons Will See
- If a user already has a LinkedIn account, she will log into it, then verify her library card number and PIN. Any Lynda.com history—learning paths saved, playlists compiled, certificates earned—will transfer over.
- If the patron does not have a LinkedIn account, she will need to create one and complete LinkedIn’s introductory process. After that, she can use her library card and PIN to get access to LinkedIn Learning as above.
Without a LinkedIn account, patrons will not be able to reach Lynda.com content, including any certificates they’ve acquired or courses they’ve completed.
