A Guide to LinkedIn Learning


  • How can I use LinkedIn Learning in my classes? 
    LinkedIn Learning is a great way to supplement your course content and help your students improve their skills. You can share individual courses, or create collections of courses and videos. LinkedIn Learning has seamless compatibility with Avenue to Learn.


  • How can LinkedIn Learning courses help my students? 
    LinkedIn Learning is a useful complement to academic course content because students access it online on their own schedule. It can help students develop in several areas, including the following:
    • Skills for their studies, such as time management and Microsoft Office
    • Software or coding for class assignments 
    • Skills to prepare for their career, including interviewing, networking, and preparing for a new job.


  • How can LinkedIn Learning courses help me?
    It’s not just students who can benefit from LinkedIn Learning. Faculty and staff can keep up to date on new technology. LinkedIn learning also has courses for professional development, including topics such as leadership, project management, and workplace culture. 


  • I am interested in learning how to create learning collections and sharing them with my team members. 

    To create a collection from the course page: 

    • Log in to your LinkedIn Learning account. 
    • Navigate to your desired course. 
    • Click the More icon. 
    • Click Add to Collection
    • From the Add to Collection pop-up window that appears, click Create a New Collection
    • In the Create a New Collection window, enter a Title and Description (if desired). 
    • Click Create
    • Click Share next to the collection you wish to share with others. 
    • For more information, go to the LinkedIn Learning Help Center: 


  • What are the advantages of connecting my LinkedIn Learning account to a LinkedIn profile? 

    LinkedIn recommends connecting or creating a LinkedIn profile to receive enhanced product features (such as retaining course history even after you’ve left McMaster University) and more personalized content recommendations. LinkedIn takes your privacy seriously, so only your basic information (e.g., name, job title, skills, photo) will be shared with McMaster University. McMaster University will not have access to any private activity from your personal LinkedIn account.
