Is LinkedIn Learning content different than Lynda.com content?
You will now have access to over 16,000 online courses. Lynda.com provided access to 7,000 English courses. LinkedIn Learning includes courses in English, French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin, and Portuguese.
Will my customer history migrate over to LinkedIn Learning, or will I need two separate accounts for Lynda.com and LinkedIn Learning?
When the upgrade is complete, your history will be in your new LinkedIn Learning for Library account under your existing Library card number and PIN.
Do I need to do anything to get this upgrade?
Nothing will be required of you prior to the upgrade.
What if I lose my library card?
After you’ve activated your customer account with your existing library card and PIN, you will be able to access your Learning account and history, even if you don’t have the physical card. If you lose your library card and are issued a new card number, your previous learning history won’t be available under the new card number and PIN.
Is a LinkedIn profile required to access LinkedIn Learning?
No, you only need a St. Louis Public Library card number and PIN to access the content.
Does anything appear on my LinkedIn profile when I start or complete a course?
No, nothing will appear on your profile unless you proactively share an update on it.
Will there be a mobile app?
Yes, LinkedIn Learning is working towards offering an app. In the meantime, you will be able to explore all of the content through your mobile web browser.
