LinkedIn Learning is an online educational platform that allows you to develop skills through professional and expert-led video tutorials based around three main themes – Business, Technology & Creative. It is flexible – access it through your web browser or via the iOS/Android app for mobile devices, learn at your own pace with bite-size and longer content, full playback controls, time-coded transcripts and the ability to download content for offline use.
What is available?
Thousands of courses are available and the University of Reading has licensed LinkedIn Learning for all current students, accessible through your usual University of Reading login credentials. Once you’re logged in, you can search for or be recommended courses relevant to your interests from the entire Learning Library of content, and track your progress within the platform.
As an optional step, you can connect your learning with your LinkedIn profile if you have one, allowing you to display certificates of course completion to enhance your profile.
This is intended to be a supplement and in no way a replacement to any of your academic teaching, and is purely optional. Use it to:
- Improve your IT skills
- Enhance your employability and showcase skills to employers
- Consolidate and expand your understanding of creative software tools
- Learn something outside of your curriculum
Where do I access it?
LinkedIn Learning is accessed by going directly to the LinkedIn Learning homepage and clicking the ‘Sign in’ button at the top of the screen, then entering your UoR email address and clicking ‘Continue’ to allow login with UoR Username and Password credentials.
