LinkedIn Learning is now available – free! - to all staff and students at the University of Newcastle. You don't need a LinkedIn profile to access it.
It provides you with a way to learn from thousands of courses, delivered by real-world industry experts from around the world. Choose courses from the fields of ‘Business’, Technology’ and ‘Creativity’ as well as professional and personal development. New courses are added every week.
You can enhance your employability and complement your university studies by learning at your own pace with courses delivered in a variety of ways, including bite-size videos for ‘learning in the moment’.
Personalise your recommendations so you can find the courses just right for you. And while you're taking a course it's interactive – you can talk to experts, colleagues and others taking the same course.
If you do have a LinkedIn profile, you can add your certificates of completion to it easily.
If you haven't used LinkedIn Learning before, click on the appropriate link below for instructions:
For students and staff who need help to navigate the platform and within courses, please contact Ruth Cameron (Library) on 16609 or at email@example.com, or watch the course above.
And of course for Library help - ask the Library.
For staff who want to know how to embed LinkedIn Learning content into Canvas courses, follow these instructions:
Let’s say that you need your students to be able to use basic Excel functions for their next tutorial, and you don’t have the time to take them through it beforehand.
Your first LinkedIn Learning course is below! Watch to find out tips and tricks for using LinkedIn Learning to its full potential. Once you complete the course you'll have a certificate of completion that can be downloaded.
At the top of the LinkedIn Learning home page, you will find a ‘Browse’ button and a search bar.
Save learning content by either clicking on the course you want and clicking on the bookmark icon in the top right-hand corner, or by clicking the 'Save' icon in your search results.
If you find a number of courses and/or videos that you think will be useful, you can create a collection. This is a grouping of content around a topic area, created by you, which can be shared with learners. Learners can access the content in a non-linear fashion, using what they need at particular points in time.
Click on ‘My Learning’ in the top right of the home screen to access everything you’re learning at the moment (‘In Progress’), all of the content you have saved, any collections you might have created, and any content that has been recommended to you (‘From Your Organization’).
