Online resources and support: LinkedIn Learning

A guide to help you with basic and more advanced digital skills for university learning

What is LinkedIn Learning?

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.


Accessing and logging in to LinkedIn Learning

Access LinkedIn Learning easily through the myUON app – also through Blackboard, LinkedIn (if you have a profile, but as mentioned above, not necessary) and the Library databases by title.
