Lynda/LinkedIn Learning is changing! LinkedIn purchased a few years ago and became LinkedIn Learning. The company is still a leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology, and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals. As we make the transition, you will see co-branding (Lynda/LinkedIn Learning).
UAB Learning & Development will soon provide links to Lynda/LinkedIn Learning videos on how to use LinkedIn Learning. Premium membership is available to benefit-eligible UAB employees. You will have continuous access to Lynda/LinkedIn Learning's engaging, top-quality online courses with up-to-date content taught by recognized industry experts.
