What do I need to know now that has become LinkedIn Learning?

New Access

How do I use LinkedIn Learning?

What happens if I connect my personal LinkedIn profile?

  • Please keep in mind that you are not required to connect your personal LinkedIn profile to your UM account.
  • UM can only see your LinkedIn profile photo. We do not have access to any other information from your LinkedIn profile. For more details please privacy information for LinkedIn Learning Learners.
  • If you connect your personal LinkedIn profile, you will get: more prompts to engage in learning, with LinkedIn Learning recommendations appearing within your LinkedIn profile; more personalized content recommendations based on what your contacts and people with similar interests and roles are watching; and more insights into learning trends, what LinkedIn influencers and thought leaders are recommending.
