LinkedIn Learning
Did you know that you now have access to thousands of video-based courses in business, creativity, and technology that can help you achieve your personal and professional goals?

All this is available through the College’s single sign-on portal accessible from your desktop, laptop, or mobile device anywhere you have Internet. All staff, faculty and students have access to LinkedIn Learning, formerly known as Lynda.com. See a small sampling of classes.

You don’t need a LinkedIn account to use LinkedIn Learning, but if you do have an account and you choose to link your LinkedIn and Bowdoin accounts, LinkedIn Learning can also create personalized recommendations to help you efficiently discover courses that are most relevant to you. Additionally, your course completions can be collected on your LinkedIn profile. If you would like additional guidance on connecting with LinkedIn Learning and logging in your first time, IT has created a short walkthrough guide that can answer many of your questions.
