LinkedIn has announced that it will be retiring Lynda.com and replacing it with LinkedIn Learning.
York University will be migrating to LinkedIn Learning effective Tuesday, July 30. During the migration period the service will be unavailable for up to 18 hours. Once the migration is complete, the current yorku.ca/Lynda website will be redirected to a new York U LinkedIn Learning site.
Faculty, staff and students do not need a LinkedIn account to have a LinkedIn Learning account – these are separate systems. However, if you do have a LinkedIn account, you can choose to connect it with your LinkedIn Learning account to get personalized course recommendations based on your LinkedIn profile.
All York University students, staff and faculty currently have free access to Lynda.com, offering a combination of dynamic online instructional content, videos and tutorials on the latest technology, software, business and creative skills. University community members will continue to have access to the same great courses, but under the new LinkedIn Learning banner.
Your LinkedIn Learning account will give you:
- unlimited access to more than 5,000 video tutorials covering business, creative and technology topics;
- convenient learning on your schedule, from any desktop or mobile device; and
- helpful resources such as quizzes, exercise files and coding practice windows to reinforce new knowledge.
