Build your knowledge @ LinkedIn Learning

What are the benefits?

LinkedIn Learning provides a personalised learning experience and is regularly updated with new content. The platform will be expanding its content to include training delivered in French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin, and Portuguese in addition to their existing collection of courses in English.

Logging into LinkedIn Learning

There are a number of options for getting started with LinkedIn Learning. If you have an existing or want to create a new LinkedIn Profile you can choose to connect it to your UniSA LinkedIn Learning account. This way you can have your LinkedIn activities integrated with your LinkedIn Profile and manage them all from the same account to save logging in with different usernames and passwords. Click here for more information on how to add LinkedIn Learning courses to your LinkedIn Profile. LinkedIn Learning have also provided more information on their FAQ page. If you don’t want to connect LinkedIn Learning to an existing LinkedIn Profile, you can choose to keep your account as a LinkedIn Learning account only. The following provides some more detailed feedback for getting started:

For new users

For the very best user experience, log out of your LinkedIn Profile in your browser prior to activating your LinkedIn Learning account. You can follow the links on the Library’s website to login to LinkedIn Learning. As part of the process you will be asked to login using your UniSA details. You will then be asked if you want to connect your UniSA LinkedIn Learning account to a LinkedIn Profile. If you choose to connect to a LinkedIn Profile:

  • Follow the prompts to enter your details to connect your accounts
  • From now on you will need to use your LinkedIn Profile when accessing any UniSA LinkedIn Learning resources

If you choose to not connect to a LinkedIn Profile:

  • You will be taken to your newly-activated UniSA LinkedIn Learning account
  • From now on you’ll be asked to use your UniSA details when accessing LinkedIn Learning resources

How do I create links to share content from LinkedIn Learning?

In LinkedIn Learning, the Share functionality built into the interface only supports Facebook and Twitter at this point in time and we have requested an enhancement to make sharing courses for UniSA users easier for everyone.

In the interim, you can bookmark the course on LinkedIn Learning in your browser to save your link locally, or you can copy and paste the address from the browser to where you want to include it (e.g. in Moodle, Microsoft Word, an email and so forth).

For staff creating links for UniSA users, you can apply an additional change to automatically take the recipient to the UniSA login page. To do this, you can manually add “&auth=true” to the end of the link.

For example: Original link in LinkedIn Learning:
https://www.linkedin.com/learning/project-management-simplified/welcome?u=58640609
Updated link for LinkedIn Learning:
https://www.linkedin.com/learning/project-management-simplified/welcome?u=58640609&auth=true

What should I expect from the login experience?

The experience logging into LinkedIn Learning can differ depending on both the link to the content and whether you are using a stand-alone UniSA LinkedIn Learning account or have connected your UniSA LinkedIn Learning account to your personal LinkedIn profile.

The following points consider these scenarios in more detail and what the login process will look like:

Scenario 1: The link has been setup to direct to the UniSA login page directly

These are links that contain “&auth=true” at the end of the link. These links are the fastest way for UniSA users to login if they have chosen to not connect their LinkedIn Learning account with a LinkedIn profile. If you have connected your LinkedIn profile to your LinkedIn Learning account you will be asked to also login with your LinkedIn profile as part of the process. Example: https://www.linkedin.com/learning/c-plus-plus-essential-training-2/introduction-to-basic-syntax?u=58640609&auth=true

If you have not already logged in with a LinkedIn Learning account:

  • You will be taken to the UniSA login page. Use your UniSA login details to proceed
  • You will then be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content ·

If you have not already logged in with a LinkedIn-connected account:

  • You will be taken to the UniSA login page. Use your UniSA login details to proceed
  • You will then be taken to LinkedIn and asked to sign in with your LinkedIn profile. Use your LinkedIn profile account details to proceed
  • You will then be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content

If you have already logged in with a LinkedIn Learning account:

  • You will be automatically be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content.

If you have already logged in with a LinkedIn-connected account:

  • You will be taken to the UniSA login page if you don’t have an active UniSA login session. Use your UniSA login details to proceed
  • You will then be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content

Scenario 2: The link has been setup to direct to the LinkedIn Learning course or video page directly

These links can be identified when they only have the UniSA organisation code but do not have the “&auth=true” added to the end of the link. These links are easier to access for users who have connected their LinkedIn Learning account with their LinkedIn Profile. This scenario also applies to any old Lynda.com links that automatically redirect to LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning accounts can still access content but have two extra clicks compared to Scenario 1 Example: https://www.linkedin.com/learning/c-plus-plus-essential-training-2/introduction-to-basic-syntax?u=58640609.

If you have not already logged in with a LinkedIn Learning account:

  • Choose to Sign In
  • Choose Sign in with your organization account
  • Enter your UniSA email address
  • You are then taken to the UniSA login page. Use your UniSA login details to proceed
  • You will then be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content
  • If you have not already logged in with a LinkedIn-connected account
  • Choose to Sign in
  • Use your LinkedIn profile account details to proceed
  • You are then taken to the UniSA login page. Use your UniSA login details to proceed
  • You will then be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content
  • If you have already logged in with a LinkedIn Learning account:
  • You will be automatically be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content ·

If you have already logged in with a LinkedIn-connected account:

  • You will be taken to the UniSA login page if you don’t have an active UniSA login session. Use your UniSA login details to proceed
  • You will then be taken to the LinkedIn Learning content

It is important to note that regardless of how you access LinkedIn Learning content, you will always have free access to any video or course as long as you login with your UniSA LinkedIn Learning account or login with your personal LinkedIn profile that has been connected to your UniSA LinkedIn Learning account.
