Online learning is getting even easier at DaytonMetroLibrary.org! The Library is upgrading its Lynda.com account to LinkedIn Learning to provide highly personalized online learning – free! LinkedIn Learning offers video tutorials and courses in software, creative, and business skills, taught by industry experts.
LinkedIn Learning users can:
“Patrons who have been using our Lynda.com platform will see all their progress and playlists carry into the new LinkedIn Learning,” said Holly Varley, Manager of Collection Development. “All of their learning history and certificates will appear on their new account as a part of the upgrade, and they will continue to be able to watch all the same content, bookmark courses, and obtain certificates of completion.”
To access LinkedIn Learning, users need a Dayton Metro Library card and PIN/password. They will also need to have a LinkedIn profile, which requires first name, last name, and email address.
“For anyone who does not already have a personal LinkedIn account, Library staff are happy to guide you through the steps of creating one,” said Varley. “You’ll have the same controls that all LinkedIn members do, including the ability to turn off your profile’s public visibility. You can also choose to not have your profile be searchable on search engines, and you can change your settings anytime on the Settings & Privacy page.”
LinkedIn Learning users who connect to their LinkedIn profile will receive additional benefits, such as personalized recommendations and information on what’s trending based on LinkedIn data.
