LinkedIn Logo

LinkedIn Learning (LIL) is an online collection of high-quality, self-paced videos and courses for all UD students, faculty and staff. This supports those who want to use LIL for their personal or professional development or with students for teaching and learning. Resources are designed to help you work your way through the login process, find and share meaningful content, and manage your own learning.

Explore how LinkedIn Learning can help you learn new technologies, develop critical business skills, and pursue thousands of other topics based on your specific career goals and interests. Then, get started by logging in, setting up your account, and selecting the skills you are interested in developing.

Access and Set up Your Account 

When logging in for the first time, you will be prompted to connect your LinkedIn account. Connecting your account allows you to share your learning with your LinkedIn network. You can still use LinkedIn Learning if you you do not have a LinkedIn account or do not wish to connect your LinkedIn account.

Choose Videos that Interest You

As part of setting up your account, you have the opportunity to set up the “Skills You’re Interested In” and “Recommendations” features before you jump into navigating the tool.

After logging in and setting up your account for the first time, you’ll be presented with several options for navigating, searching, and browsing for the videos you’re most interested in. You’ll also have control over how to navigate and play back the individual videos and courses you discover.

Find Your Way Around the Tool

Access Closed Captioning and Transcripts

Every video in the LinkedIn Learning database includes text-based closed captioning and transcript options.

Search and Browse for Videos

You can search for specific videos and courses, or for groups of related videos curated in Learning Paths.
