Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning Update

On the evening of the 23rd of September, UC's subscription to Lynda.com was upgraded to LinkedIn Learning. Existing Lynda.com users would have received an email from LinkedIn, with details on how to access the new system. 
 
Note: It is not necessary to create a public LinkedIn profile to access the courses, although LinkedIn users are welcome to link their public profile to the system to take advantage of LinkedIn's personalised course recommendations.
 
For any questions regarding the recent upgrade to LinkedIn Learning, please see the FAQs within this guide.
