LinkedIn Learning Skill Development Courses

LinkedIn Learning, formerly Lynda.com, provides free online courses in a variety of technical and behavioral skills that can enhance your resume and round out your skillset. It is free for all University of Maryland students when you log in with your university (@umd.edu) e-mail address. Logging in with your TerpMail account will not work.  Accessing LinkedIn Learning is easiest if you visit this page, and click the red Sign In button.
 
When you log in with your university (@umd.edu) e-mail address, you will be redirected to CAS multi-factor identification log in. Once you confirm your identity with Duo, you will be automatically logged in to LinkedIn Learning. You will know that it is connected to the university if you see a University of Maryland logo in the top right corner. 
 
Connect your LinkedIn account to LinkedIn Learning through your settings on LinkedIn Learning. This is important because after you complete a LinkedIn Learning course, you can add a badge to your LinkedIn account to prove that you finished it.
