Say Hello to LinkedIn Learning

Cal Poly is upgrading your Lynda.com account to LinkedIn Learning — a highly personalized learning experience designed to help you achieve your goals through learning you’ll use, love, and apply.

LinkedIn Learning, which is based on Lynda.com, has the same great content but provides an even more personalized experience. And, it’s still free to Cal Poly faculty, staff and student employees! When the upgrade is complete, you will be redirected to LinkedIn Learning. Don’t worry, all your learning activity and history from Lynda.com was seamlessly transferred to LinkedIn Learning.

What do I need to do?

You will still access LinkedIn Learning through your Cal Poly Portal under My Apps or on the Staff and Faculty Training tab. All your data has been migrated automatically to the new platform. When you upgrade, you can choose to connect LinkedIn Learning to your existing LinkedIn account.

If you have shared links to any courses these will be redirected to a course in LinkedIn Learning for one year. You will need to provide a direct link to replace this after that time.

How do I use LinkedIn Learning?
