Teaching and Learning Center LinkedIn Learning Access

Welcome to the New LinkedIn Learning TLC pathway!

Everyone at WCC – students, faculty, and staff – can now access LinkedIn Learning directly without having to go through Blackboard. In order to have the smoothest experience with this new pathway, we have created professional development collections within LinkedIn Learning – allowing us to bring you the best of LinkedIn Learning in real time.

The instructions below will help you save your LinkedIn Learning Collections directly to your account, you will only need to go through this process (and these instructions) once.

Logging in for the First Time

You are able to access each of the TLC’s PD Collections through the links provided in this document. Since this is your first time through this process, you will need to Duo authenticate your log-in, if you are not logged in to LinkedIn Learning already.

Saving Collections to your Library

Instructional faculty are eligible to receive professional development credit (or stipends for Part-Time faculty) for viewing courses that fall under the Teaching, Leadership, Workplace Effectiveness, and Diversity learning objectives. Each learning objective has its own respective LinkedIn Learning Collection. To open each Faculty Collection, click the links below:

Upon opening a Collection, you will be able to view all of the videos that are eligible for Professional Development credit for that Collection’s learning objective. To maintain easy access to these Collections, we recommend saving them to your Library.

Once you hit Save, this PD Collection will be saved under My Learning. Repeat this process for all PD Collections.

If you are on the LinkedIn Learning homepage, your Collections will be available via My Library on the menu to the left-hand side of the screen. You may need to expand it to see all of the modules.

Logging in Moving Forward

Once you have set up and saved all of your PD Collections, you will no longer need to utilize Blackboard to log-in to LinkedIn Learning. Instead, you can bookmark https://www.linkedin.com/learning to your preferred web browser.

Note: In order for LinkedIn Learning content to count towards PD hours, courses must be listed 100% completed and listed in one of the collections. After a course has been 100% completed, the course will be validated in KALPA the following month (ex. 100% completed in January, validated in February).

If you would like to recommend a course to be added to a Collection, contact [email protected] with recommendations for the Faculty Collection or contact [email protected] with recommendations for  the OPT Collection.
