Setting up Your Linkedin Learning Account

Current IC Students, Faculty, and Staff have free access to LinkedIn Learning, an online educational platform that helps you discover and develop business, technology-related, and creative skills through expert-led course videos.

With more than 5,000 courses and personalized recommendations, you can discover, complete, and track courses related to your field and interests. You can also choose to add these courses and related skills to your LinkedIn profile once you've completed them.

4. Additional Questions

What if I pay for Linkedin Premium, and Linkedin Learning comes with my subscription?
As a member of the Ithaca College Organization, you will have access to LinkedIn Learning at no additional cost. You can connect your personal LinkedIn account at any time, and your learning content will be merged and synced together. If you would like to take advantage of the other benefits of LinkedIn Learning, you will need to keep your current subscription active since Ithaca College's licensing does not extend to LinkedIn Premium.

If I contact LinkedIn Learning to disassociate my accounts, what happens to my learning history?
Your Learning history will persist with the Ithaca College account you had created. If/when you reconnect your personal LinkedIn Learning account with the account provided to you by Ithaca College, your learning history will be re-merged and synchronized.
