Linking to LinkedIn Learning Resources in VU Collaborate

Use this guide to find and use the most appropriate LinkedIn Learning video resource link. LinkedIn Learning is an online platform which provides video resources. The video resources are organised into courses comprising of several short videos, and there is a capability to link individual videos or full courses in VU Collaborate.

In September 2019 Lynda.com videos migrated to the new LinkedIn Learning where the same video content is available. Lynda.com is no longer available at Victoria University 

Follow the steps in this guide carefully. This process ensures students off-campus link through to the AUTHENICATED instance of the LinkedIn Learning platform which means they will access the full video or course rather than just a preview.

 

Step One: Access the LinkedIn Learning platform


1. Log into the My VU Portal.

2. Scan through the options under Application access.

3. Select LinkedIn Learning videos.

You can also access LinkedIn Learning from the A-Z Databases page on the library website, or go directly to LinkedIn on the website
