On Monday, August 19, Rutgers will be transitioning from Lynda.com to an upgraded platform, LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning will provide the same access to valuable instructional videos through an improved, personalized experience powered by LinkedIn.
What does this mean?
LinkedIn now owns Lynda.com and on Monday, August 19, Lynda.com will be upgraded to LinkedIn Learning. Everyone who currently has a Lynda.com account with Rutgers will be transitioned to LinkedIn Learning. The transition will take about 18-24 hours to complete. The platform will be unavailable during this period, and all current users’ Lynda.com account information will be migrated to LinkedIn Learning.
What will happen after the transition?
All users will have their Lynda.com information migrated to LinkedIn Learning on August 19. Per our new licensing agreement, access to LinkedIn Learning will only be available to active Rutgers faculty, staff, and students. Beginning on October 15, if you do not have an active affiliation with Rutgers as faculty, staff, or student, you will no longer have access to LinkedIn Learning.
There will be an opportunity for the users without an active affiliation of faculty, staff, or student to preserve their account information before October 15. Additional information on this process will be shared once the transition is complete.
