LinkedIn Learning

 

Have you heard the news? Lynda.com is now LinkedIn Learning!

In July 2019, Stevens Institute of Technology upgraded all faculty, student, and staff Lynda.com accounts to LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning includes all the same great Lynda.com content you love, but better.

With LinkedIn Learning, you can continue where you left off in Lynda.com, with the same access to your learning history, account info, and certifications. All of your history, in progress, and bookmarks are now in your new LinkedIn Learning account.
