University increases access to LinkedIn Learning resources


Students and temporary employees now have access to LinkedIn Learning to support their career and professional development.


LinkedIn Learning offers more than 15,000 video tutorials and training resources about business, technology and creative skills.

Regular faculty and staff currently have access to the on-demand learning platform, and more than 10,000 have used it in the last year.

“The way we live and work has changed, and LinkedIn Learning has enabled us to continue providing robust professional and career development for faculty and staff,” said Sonya Jacobs, chief organizational learning officer and senior director of Michigan Medicine Faculty and Leadership Development.

“As we pivot from in-person classrooms to more remote options, online learning will remain a large part of how we develop.”

The most popular courses accessed by U-M faculty and staff over the past three months include:

New teaching resources for faculty

A new feature gives faculty the option to create collections in LinkedIn Learning. These can be incorporated into Canvas or shared with students to augment their online learning resources.

“This is an incredibly valuable and strategic tool for our university community,” said Ravi Pendse, vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

“Our amazing students can now use LinkedIn Learning to get a jump start on using new software applications, explore their field of study, support their learning and make a positive difference in our world.”

Organizational Learning and ITS are partnering to bring this resource to the university.
