UPDATE: Current license expiring September 21, 2021

For the past three years, Ryerson faculty, instructors, students and staff have had full access to LinkedIn Learning through a Ministry of Colleges and Universities license administered by eCampusOntario. The ministry license will expire on September 21, 2020.

Ryerson University has purchase a one-year campus-wide license. Faculties may consider purchasing access in the future.

The Library is also available to assist faculty and instructors in evaluating and selecting alternative resources. Among the resources available in the library, O’Reilly For Higher Education may be of help to some faculty members. Though not a full replacement, the IT training videos on O'Reilly mirror some of the LinkedIn Learning content. Some of the features are shown here on the O’Reilly website, external link.

For assistance or more information on the library's resources, please contact your subject liaison librarian or Electronic Resources Librarian, Lei Jin (leijin@ryerson.ca), Electronic Resources Acquisition Librarian.

Lynda.com becomes LinkedIn Learning

Ryerson University was upgraded from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning on July 30, 2019. All faculty, staff, and students have access to the same library content with the added benefits of the expanded LinkedIn community. Courses and videos are personalized towards on-demand career skills and encourage engagement through additional features such as InMail, access to who's viewed their profile, and competitive insights on other job applicants.

New Look, same Lynda.com content

LinkedIn Learning offers 100% of the same library content in a new, industry driven platform to help you build professional skills across a vast range of job functions.

“Playlists” are now “Collections”

Collections are great for sharing learning goal oriented courses and videos. Browse through collections curated by other industry professionals or create your own collections to watch later.
