LinkedIn Learning logo fading to white

The Government of Ontario LinkedIn Learning pilot, which made the online learning resources available to the province’s post-secondary institutions, is set to expire.

UWindsor faculty, staff, and students will continue to have access to LinkedIn Learning until Sept. 30. After this date, however, LinkedIn Learning course content as well as user learning history will no longer be available.

Instructors: If you had been planning to rely on LinkedIn Learning for any of your course learning materials, look to other sources. For assistance with this process, contact the Office of Open Learning or Leddy Library.

All LinkedIn Learning users: To download your learning history, go to the “my learning” tab at the top of your account and then click “learning history.” Beside each course there is a more “more” button drop-down where you can download your certificates or add to your LinkedIn profile.
