LinkedIn Learning

We’re excited to announce our partnership with LinkedIn to bring LinkedIn Learning to SJSU free of charge. An on-demand eLearning portal with over 12,000 available courses, LinkedIn Learning provides learning and development content for students, faculty, and staff. These courses range from just-in-time subject refreshers to entire sessions designed to help you gain or grow skills. San Jose State is one of the first institutions of higher education in the nation to work with LinkedIn to bring this enterprise-level development tool to a university campus.

Getting started is easy:

  • Go to one.SJSU.edu and log in
  • Type “LinkedIn Learning” in the search bar
  • Click on the LinkedIn Learning tile (and click on the heart icon to favorite it for later!)
  • Your LinkedIn Learning account will be created automatically. To personalize your course recommendations, you can either connect your LinkedIn profile or complete the brief set of questions that appear.

The IT Division sees LinkedIn Learning as a valuable tool for every member of the campus community. Students can access just-in-time courses that will refresh their academic knowledge or help them expand their skillsets in the job market. Staff now have on-demand professional development options, available when and where they need it. Faculty can integrate relevant LinkedIn Learning content into their instruction to supplement the classroom experience.

LinkedIn Learning develops personalized course recommendations for you based on insights from LinkedIn’s network and your desired job role, skill set, and experience level. These courses can supplement your academic knowledge with information from industry professionals, complementing a student’s journey from enrollment, through graduation, and into the workforce. The many Spartans already familiar with Lynda.com will be happy to know that they can find the Lynda library available at LinkedIn Learning.
