What is LinkedIn Learning?
LinkedIn Learning is an online video training library that provides you with the opportunity to bridge the gap between the career you want and the skills you need.

All of the courses are taught by expert instructors and come with fully searchable transcripts. Curated playlists are also available. To learn more, check out this introductory video.
How are others at Catholic University using this video library?
"LinkedIn Learning is a tool I have used as an instructor, technology team lead, instructional continuity champion, and for my own personal growth. As an instructor, I have integrated LinkedIn Learning tutorials into courses as a supplemental resource to student learning. Tutorials are easily integrated into Cardinal Learn (Blackboard) to support the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). As the Instructional Technology Team Lead, Learning Paths were created for Service Desk staff to prepare for and register to successfully complete CompTIA exams as Certified Technicians. As the need to implement Instructional Continuity when circumstances call for disruption of traditional classroom instruction, LinkedIn Learning has become an invaluable delivery tool to enhance instruction and engage students. Personally, I have taken advantage of the trainings, workshops, and learning paths applicable not only to my current position, but to enhance skills to further my own career and personal interests. The benefits of LinkedIn Learning go beyond basic tutorials. The ability to reach students, faculty, staff, and individuals for personal growth make this tool a great value to Catholic University's mission to being an institution of higher learning.”
