    Students and staff to benefit from thousands of online courses with LinkedIn Learning e-learning license

    All Aberystwyth University students and staff now have access to LinkedIn Learning providing access to thousands of professionally produced online courses to develop professional, digital and creative skills. About LinkedIn Learning. 

    The online learning platform has a library of over 16,000 expert-led learning courses ranging from business courses to creative and technology related content. Students and staff are able to access and complete these at any time, receiving a certificate of completion which they can display on their LinkedIn profiles. 

    Accessible 24/7 from your desktop or mobile device, visit LinkedIn Learning by logging in with your University email and password: How to logon to access LinkedIn Learning. 

    You may watch an entire course, or individual videos – some are as short as four or five minutes. You will be able to bookmark courses that suit your interests, keep track of the courses you have taken, and when you complete a course, you’ll receive a certificate. You have the opportunity to refine or develop your professional skills, learn new software, and explore other areas as you plan for your personal development, academic and career growth. 

    Professor Tim Woods commented: “A LinkedIn Learning licence for all students, academic staff and professional support colleagues allows Aberystwyth University to add world-class high-quality skills training resources to our offerings for undergraduates and postgraduates, and for the internal development purposes of our academic and professional support staff. By adding and integrating high-quality skills training resources into our curriculum, Aberystwyth University enables students to develop their digital skills, professional skills and career skills, preparing our students for the future of work.”
