Welcome to LinkedIn Learning.

Lynda is now LinkedIn Learning:

  • All CSUN students, faculty and staff have access to LinkedIn Learning, the new version of Lynda.com
  • LinkedIn users have the option to connect their LinkedIn profile with their LinkedIn Learning account to receive personalized training recommendations 
  • All Lynda.com learning history (e.g. courses watched, courses saved) and certificates of completion will automatically migrate to the LinkedIn Learning environment.

FAQs

Is the content the same on LinkedIn Learning as on Lynda.com?

Do I need to connect my LinkedIn profile?

No, you will have the option to connect your LinkedIn profile or create a separate Learning account during activation.

Will I still be able to use the Lynda.com app after the upgrade?

I linked my CSUN account with my LinkedIn profile and now I am not able to log in. How do I log in?

If you linked your accounts, and you are using the CSUN username and password to access LinkedIn, you will be redirected to a LinkedIn branded log in page. Use your LinkedIn account information to access your CSUN LinkedIn Learning profile.
