LinkedIn Learning

Eligible faculty, student, and staff members can take advantage of LinkedIn Learning courses in leadership, professional development, creative media, and information technology. Its courses are designed for in-depth and just-in-time instruction at various skill levels.

The platform also offers some of the same courses in German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Mandarin or Brazilian Portuguese languages. View a small sampling of topics and courses.

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 has migrated when you activated 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.

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
