Try LinkedIn Learning Today!

You may have heard recently that all UW students, staff, and faculty now have free unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning – but you may be wondering what LinkedIn Learning is, how to access the platform, and where to start. We hear you – and we’re here to help!

What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning is an on-demand library of high-quality instructional videos designed to help you gain new skills and advance your career. Whether you want to brush up on expertise you might be asked about in an interview, learn new skills to make yourself more competitive for jobs that interest you, or explore professional learning paths, LinkedIn Learning makes it easy to access 16,000+ courses online from your desktop, phone, or tablet. And the unlimited access for UW students, faculty, and staff truly gives you unlimited possibilities – you can choose to just watch one-off videos on specific skills, complete entire courses on relevant topics, or even earn CEUs and prepare for professional certification exams. All you need is your UW NetID login and an internet connection!

Sounds great! How can I access this platform?
UW students, staff, and faculty will need to use their UW NetID credentials to sign in to LinkedIn Learning here, using UW Single Sign-On (SSO). With your UW login credentials, you will have unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning on desktop, mobile, and tablet devices – access is provided courtesy of the Student Technology Fee. There’s even a convenient mobile app that makes it easy to download videos for offline viewing, so you can take your learning anywhere you want to go.

There are so many great videos and courses – where should I start?
It’s true, there is a LOT of content here – LinkedIn Learning has thousands of courses, each organized into brief video chapters, with new videos added weekly! All that content is exciting, but it can be a little daunting to know where to begin. To help you get started, we have selected a handful of videos* in key learning categories that we think will interest UW students and staff alike.

*Please note: you will need to sign in to LinkedIn Learning via UW SSO for full access to videos and courses, including those listed here.

This is just a small sample of what is available to you through LinkedIn Learning, so we encourage you to explore the platform, find videos and courses that interest you, and share your favorites with your friends and colleagues!
