Transition to LinkedIn Learning

Rutgers transitioned from Lynda.com to an upgraded platform, LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning provides the same access to valuable instructional videos through an improved, personalized experience powered by LinkedIn. Everyone who previously had a Lynda.com account with Rutgers was automatically transitioned to LinkedIn Learning.

LinkedIn Learning, an upgraded platform of Lynda.com, features thousands of video tutorials and training resources about business, technology, and creative skills.

Rutgers provides free access to LinkedIn Learning for active faculty, staff, and students. LinkedIn Learning offers industry-leading content and courses taught by expert instructors in leadership, project management, graphic design, photography, software development, and more. Courses range from beginner to advanced and can be taken to obtain a professional certificate or learn more about a personal hobby.
