Lynda.com is upgrading to LinkedIn Learning

The current platform for Lynda.com will be upgraded on 1 October 2019 to a new enhanced LinkedIn Learning user experience with custom and pre-built learning paths and shareable multimedia collections.

In preparation for the upgrade all Lynda.com users are asked to minimise creation of playlists and links to videos as the links will need to be updated post-upgrade. Please track your current playlists and individual video links. If you prefer to continue making playlists or linking to videos in learner resources between now and October 2019, it is recommended that you create a spreadsheet of links (URLs) and resource locations so you can map to the new LinkedIn Learning links post-upgrade. 

Please note that Lynda.com links with a TAFE NSW domain ending with ?org=tafensw.edu.au will redirect from Lynda.com to the new LinkedIn Learning platform. 

Where do links go?

Using Lynda.com in teaching

Lynda.com is a powerful tool in the classroom. It can supplement teaching and allow students to explore concepts at their own pace. It integrates seamlessly with our learning management systems.

This video from Lynda.com's Education + Elearning team, covers the best practices for teaching with Lynda.com. Topics include maximising teaching time by integrating Lynda.com with a flipped classroom, creating a culture of learning, and even holding students accountable. Plus, learn how to use playlists to organise and assign training, and integrate Lynda.com with learning management systems.
