FAQs and Help

Upgrade to LinkedIn Learning FAQ's

Will I lose all of the information in my current LyndaCampus account when West Chester University upgrades to LinkedIn Learning?

No. Your entire Lynda.com history will be migrated to your LinkedIn Learning account.

Will I have access to the same content in LinkedIn Learning as I did with Lynda.com?

Yes. LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com and you will have access to content that was previously available through Lynda.com.

HOW DO I ACTIVATE MY UPGRADED WCU LINKEDIN LEARNING ACCOUNT?

Click here to active your WCU LinkedIn Learning Account

Will playlists be ported over?

Playlists will be transferred to LinkedIn Learning and now called "Collections"

How will this affect courses that I instruct using D2L?

If you are currently linking to any LyndaCampus videos, they will continue to work until January 2020.  After that time, the current LyndaCampus links will be broken.  It is recommended that you update all shareable links during Fall Semester of 2019.  For further assistance, contact D2L Services (d2l@wcupa.edu)) or your Distance Education Instructional Designer (distanceed@wcupa.edu).

What about embedded LinkedIn Learning Videos in my D2L Course?

At this time, LinkedIn Learning limits the number of embedded videos per user. Therefore, it is recommended that you provide a link to the LinkedIn Learning video rather than embedding in the course at this time.  For further assistance, contact D2L Services (d2l@wcupa.edu) or your Distance Education Instructional Designer (distanceed@wcupa.edu).

HOW DO I ACCESS LINKEDIN LEARNING AT WEST CHESTER UNIVERSITY?

When you log in to LinkedIn Learning for the first time you will be given the opportunity to link your Learning account to your LinkedIn account (if you have one).

- will be prompted to fill in basic information for a LinkedIn Learning profile
- can choose a series of interests that will help promote videos you may be interested in

LinkedIn Learning will be able to use information such as your job title, industry, and listed skills to help promote videos and subjects you might be interested in
Future logins will have you sign in first to your LinkedIn Learning WCU account, using your WCU username and password, then, sign in to LinkedIn, using the email/username and password of your LinkedIn account (you can have more than 1 email address associated with your LinkedIn Profile).
