Faculty Can Use LinkedIn Learning in Their Courses

LinkedIn Learning (LiL) can be used as a complement to your current curriculum. There are many options already available to recommend to your students, or you can curate custom collections to fit your specific needs. 

LinkedIn Learning can be integrated with Canvas and Blackboard courses by setting up an External Tool. See the Canvas and Blackboard Integrations section on the University Human Resources (UHR) page for directions. 

Faculty can specify whether modules should be done sequentially or in any order, and grades are pass/fail. See Creating Collections section on the UHR website.

The UHR page about LinkedIn Learning for Faculty has information about how to get started. View this custom collection for tips and tricks on using LinkedIn Learning with your students.
