Get the latest information and announcements regarding UCF's migration to the new LinkedIn Learning platform.
As you may know, Microsoft acquired LinkedIn and Lynda.com, and has combined the best parts of both platforms into LinkedIn Learning to further the mission of helping professionals be better at what they do.
LinkedIn Learning offers a new, easy-to-use interface, and a range of new features and content while still providing the same Lynda.com content. Please keep in mind that your viewing history, course completions, playlists, and other data will all be migrated to the new platform.
Additional FAQs will be added as we progress into the migration process.
How can I access the LinkedIn Learning?
You can access LinkedIn Learning at https://digitallearning.ucf.edu/linkedin-learning once the migration is complete. You will login using your UCF NID and NID password.
Can I still use the Lynda.com app after the migration?
No. You will need to download the LinkedIn Learning app to replace the Lynda.com app once the migration is complete.
Will I still be able to access my saved playlists?
Yes. Your viewing history, course completions, playlists, and other data will all be migrated to the new platform.
Will saved course and video URLs remain the same after the migration?
No. While the same content found on Lynda.com will be available in LinkedIn Learning, URLs to Lynda.com content will change after the migration. Lynda.com URLs will automatically redirect for a limited time after the migration.
Is my Lynda data coming along with the migration to the LinkedIn Learning platform?
Yes, all users, groups, reports, and playlists will automatically be moved to LinkedIn Learning along with all Learner history and activity upon a user’s first-time logging into LinkedIn Learning. Account data will not transfer if a user logs in for the first time after March 31, 2020.
Do I need a LinkedIn profile to use LinkedIn Learning?
No, A LinkedIn profile/account is not needed to access LinkedIn Learning.
Is the content on LinkedIn Learning the same as on Lynda.com?

I have Lynda.com video content embedded in my course, what happens to those URLs after the migration?
Lynda.com URLs will automatically redirect until March 31, 2020, after which they will no longer be valid. On Nov 01, 2019, the Center for Distributed Learning will search Webcourses@UCF and automatically update any old instances of Lynda.com URLs to the new LinkedIn learning URLs. No further action will be required from teaching faculty. If you have any questions about this process or simply wish to learn more, please contact Webcourses@UCF Support.
Instructors at UCF can either assign LinkedIn Learning content to students, or point them to the Lynda.com Online Training Library. Using the playlist feature, instructors can compile playlists of lynda.com courses that they want their students to take, and then share those playlists with their students.
Use the search box on the LinkedIn Learning home page to search for specific courses. Click the link to the course you want to explore, and then read the title.
The site license grants access to all active UCF students, faculty, and staff.
