LinkedIn Learning - skills training for everyone

The video training courses in LinkedIn Learning cover a massive range of subjects, from Project Management and Excel to Adobe Photoshop and communication skills, and even playing the piano, learning to write a song or improving your underwater photography skills!

This new learning platform will help you pick up new skills, either as part of your course, for professional development, or to care for your well-being during this challenging time. 

Head over to the IT Services website to log in – and view the intro video by Alexander Butler (of ITS daily video update fame) who explains the things you need to know the first time you log in.

LinkedIn Learning will ask you a series of questions to customise your learning experience, and you’ll be asked if you want to link it to your own LinkedIn profile. There are a lot of advantages to doing this, but if you’d rather keep them separate then you can still use LinkedIn Learning.

Katie Damen, Assistant Director, ITS Business Relations, said:

“We’re so excited to open up LinkedIn Learning to all students and staff, it’s an amazing opportunity for everyone to jump in and access professional training in a huge variety of subjects. 

“We hope it’s going to make a huge difference to everyone in the short term as you can access it from home, or via your mobile to keep busy and learning new skills in these extraordinary times. You can even pick up some video production tips which will improve those TikTok videos! 

“In the longer term we’ll be working with educators and training teams to enhance education and embed professional development at the University.”

IT Services is working very hard to make sure everyone can learn and work effectively during the COVID-19 crisis, and LinkedIn Learning is just the latest in a series of improvements and new systems. 

Over time, teams across the University will curate more content to make Courses or Learning Paths that are tailored to education programmes, Professional Services departments or specific well-being needs of our students and staff.
