Frequently Asked Questions


Here is a list of frequently asked questions to help you navigate LinkedIn Learning. If you have any additional questions, please contact our LinkedIn Learning feedback team at hr@tc.columbia.edu

LinkedIn Learning is available at no cost to all faculty, staff and students at Teachers College, Columbia University.

No, our license to LinkedIn Learning does not extend to TC Alumni. If you have had access to Lynda.com or LinkedIn Learning, it will be discontinued in compliance with our license agreement.

Yes. LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com and you will have access to content that was previously available through Lynda.com.

All Lynda.com links should be updated to LinkedIn Learning links before May 31, 2020. After this date, Lynda.com links may not redirect as the Lynda.com platform is scheduled to retire.

As of September 17, 2019, your Linked in Learning Account is not associated with your LinkedIn profile (if you have one). As a result:

  • Content recommendations are based only on your LinkedIn Learning activity and will not include insights from LinkedIn.com
  • Q & A on courses will not be visible
  • Content will not be shown on LinkedIn.com in the feed
  • Skills gained from completing courses and certificates of completion will not be able to be added to your LinkedIn profile

At this time, Columbia University has chosen to disable the connection between your LinkedIn Learning profile from LinkedIn due to privacy concerns, because users were unable to manually decouple these accounts themselves.

As a result of this decision, please note:

  • If you previously connected your LinkedIn profile to your LinkedIn Learning account, you have been sent a new activation email.
  • If you started and completed any learning between August 7, 2019–September 17, 2019, your learning history for that period will not appear on the LinkedIn Learning platform.
