LinkedIn Learning Integration

The LinkedIn Learning integration allows LinkedIn Learning content to be synchronized with the Learning Management System (LMS). Learners can launch LinkedIn Learning content from the LMS or their LinkedIn portal and have their progress tracked in their LMS transcripts.

To access the Edge Marketplace, go to: Admin > Tools > Edge and click the Marketplace link.

Use Cases

Use Case #1: Manage LinkedIn Content via Course Catalog

Brenda is a learning administrator at ACME Corp, which uses the LinkedIn Learning integration. She uses the Course Catalog to manage the courses offered by LinkedIn Learning. This content appears in the form of online courses within the Course Catalog.

Use Case #2: Launch and Complete LinkedIn Content in LMS

Lisa is an employee of ACME Corp. She browses for courses on Learner Home and decides to take a LinkedIn Learning course she finds. After launching the course, a new window opens with the course, and she does not need to provide additional login credentials. After she completes the course, it is added to her transcript in a Completed status.

Use Case #3: Sync LinkedIn Content with LMS Transcript

Lisa logged into the LinkedIn Learning site and completed a course for which she was not registered in the LMS. Because her learning administrator enabled the Bypass Registration option for the LinkedIn Learning integration, this completed course is synced to Lisa's transcript in the LMS.

Considerations

The following considerations apply to this functionality:

  • When the LinkedIn Learning integration is enabled, LinkedIn Learning content is synced with the LMS on a nightly basis. Note: All synced content is flagged as Mobile Ready if the corresponding option on the Edge Configuration page for the integration is selected.
  • Administrators can configure a Bypass Registration option for the integration. If enabled, when a learner completes a course on LinkedIn Learning, even if they are not registered for the course in the LMS, the course appears in a Completed status on their transcript and can be reported on. If this option is disabled, in the same scenario, the course appears in a Completed status in the form of a learning record, which is NOT reportable.
  • The learning content progress report available through LinkedIn Learning is limited to training completions at this time. Other than completions, no other progress data is recorded in the LMS, meaning no percentage of progress or time spent in course is recorded.

Implementation

This integration is available for no additional cost via the Edge Marketplace . Additional information about the LinkedIn Learning integration and its configuration options is also available through the Edge Marketplace.

Organizations currently using Lynda.com or LinkedIn Learning AICC courses will need a migration to be able to use this new integration. However, this migration is not yet available. Further information will be shared with organizations using Lynda.com or LinkedIn Learning AICC courses once the migration becomes available.
