LinkedIn Learning

Lynda.com was recently migrated to LinkedIn Learning.  What is LinkedIn Learning?

  •  A FREE online course library available to students, staff, and faculty
  • Same Lynda.com content, new user interface
  •  Courses are taught by Industry Experts
  •  Contains a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, Software, Creative, and Professional content
  • Available 24/7 from any location
  • Integrates with your LinkedIn profile, if you enable this feature

The best way to login is via the LinkedIn Learning login button at: https://portal.csuchico.edu 

Below are a few issues reported during the migration, along with how to avoid/resolve them.

  • If you previously used Lynda.com, your account history may not have transferred over yet. This is currently being worked on by LinkedIn Learning.
  • If you received an email warning you of a 7-day expiration for LinkedIn Learning invite codes, do not worry. You can log in at any time through the portal.
  • If you were redirected to a page asking to purchase access to LinkedIn Learning, do not purchase it. The service is free for all students, staff, and faculty. To avoid this issue, login through the portal.

If you experience any difficulties logging in or using LinkedIn Learning, please submit a support ticket: https://support.csuchico.edu/TDClient/Requests/ServiceDet?ID=8946

Lynda.com Migrating to LinkedIn Learning

Update 8/15/2019

Vendor technicians identified an issue today that would interfere with migration of user history from Lynda to LinkedIn Learning. We have placed the migration on hold until that issue can be resolved.

At the moment, Lynda is functioning normally but LinkedIn Learning is inaccessible for most users. I am working with the vendor to determine next steps.

From Distributed Learning Technologies:

Lynda.com is being phased out and migrating all content over to LinkedIn Learning.

The vendor will email all users with an active Lynda.com account to notify them about the change. This will describe the change and inform users that they have several options during the migration. Users will have the option to migrate their Lynda.com training history over to LinkedIn Learning. Users will have the option to link their LinkedIn Learning account to a public LinkedIn Profile; if they do so, they will have the additional option to choose which learning activity (if any) is shown on that profile.

We anticipate that all current Lynda.com content will be available in LinkedIn Learning. After the migration, links to Lynda.com content will automatically redirect to corresponding LinkedIn Learning content. DLT will coordinate a separate effort to update those links before the redirects eventually stop working (currently expected around Q2 2020).
