Explore, Learn, and Grow

  • Go to LinkedIn Learning and log in with your Yale netID and password. If you have been working with courses, you will find all learner-specific data will migrate when you activate your account.
  • Connecting your LinkedIn Profile with your LinkedIn Learning account is optional. Initially, you will be asked twice if you want to connect your Linkedin Profile to your LinkedIn Learning account. If you choose not to link your profile to your account, you can still log into LinkedIn Learning.
    You can decide to link your profile to your account at a later date, if desired. View the Getting Started with LinkedIn Learning guide.
  • Showcase your professional growth and development at Yale and enter your completed courses or certifications into your Workday Talent Profile.
  • Consult the Learn and Grow page to find out about other learning and career development opportunities at Yale. 


  • Courses are broken down into multiple 2-10 minute videos.
  • Take the entire course or review an individual segment.
  • Practice using downloadable exercise files demonstrated in the video, where applicable.
  • LinkedIn Learning allows you to customize your privacy settings. You can disconnect your LinkedIn Profile from your LinkedIn Learning account by contacting LinkedIn. If you choose to connect your LinkedIn Profile to your LinkedIn Learning account, Yale will only be able to view your learning activity, profile information (photo, name, work title), and courses transferred to your group account. Aggregate data on skills within the organization will also be collected based on skills identified by Yale employees in their public LinkedIn profiles. Learn more about LinkedIn Learning’s privacy and account security.
  • Contact the IT Help Desk with any questions.

Recommended courses may not reflect Yale practices or policies. Please refer to your Human Resources Generalist (HRG) for more tailored support.
