What is the difference between LinkedIn Learning vs. Lynda?
LinkedIn Learning merges the best parts of Lynda.com and LinkedIn, providing additional benefits for users, including:
Am I required to connect a LinkedIn Learning profile to my LinkedIn account?
While optional, connecting your profile results in a more personalized learning experience that includes special course recommendations based on your job title, skills, and industry.
Users can add LinkedIn Learning course certificates to their connected LinkedIn account.
Can I create playlists in LinkedIn Learning?
Yes, playlist creation uses the same process in LinkedIn Learning as it did in Lynda.
If I had Lynda content bookmarked are there steps I should take once the transition is complete?
Yes. If you have bookmarked videos or shared playlists containing the Lynda URL, you will want to update them. Links to specific Lynda videos will point to LinkedIn Learning courses that contain the videos.
Will the groups that I set up in Lynda still be available in LinkedIn Learning?
Yes, groups that were set up in Lynda are also available in LinkedIn Learning.
As a first time LinkedIn Learning user, do I need to do anything when I sign in?
The first time you sign in, you will step through an easy process to create a LinkedIn Learning profile that personalizes the default video content based on your skills and interests. If you already have a LinkedIn account, you can add your LinkedIn Learning profile to it. If not, you can simply create a LinkedIn Learning account.
Will I lose information when my current Lynda account transitions to LinkedIn Learning?
No, most of your history will be migrated to your LinkedIn Learning account.
Additional details for LinkedIn Learning profiles and LinkedIn account creation information is available here.
