About LinkedIn Learning

Syracuse University has upgraded to LinkedIn Learning  to help you explore thousands of business, tech, and creative courses to get the skills you need. 

A full user's guide has been provided by LinkedIn Learning - https://learning.linkedin.com/content/dam/me/learning/en-us/pdfs/lil-guide-how-to-use-linkedin-learning.pdf

All users are able to sync their LinkedIn Learning account to a new or existing LinkedIn profile. Note, however, that this is optional and not required for access or use a Syracuse University LinkedIn Learning account.
