What should I do if I already have a LinkedIn Learning account?

If you have a private account with LinkedIn Learning, it doesn’t impact your account with NECC. You may choose to keep your private account and transfer activity between the accounts or cancel your private account. If you have further questions about this, please see the help center within LinkedIn Learning.

What about my privacy and data collection?

What about my privacy and data collection?

If you choose to connect your LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn won’t share your personal information (such as job search history, connection request, in-mails, and other features) with NECC providing you access to learning; NECC will only have access to your LinkedIn Learning course viewings. The LiL reports provide aggregate user learning activity, such as the content that users are viewing and completing. These reports will only be available to assigned individuals at the institution.

What languages are available in LinkedIn Learning?

What languages are available in LinkedIn Learning?

Change the language in your LinkedIn Learning settings if you would like to browse the course library in a different language. To change the language settings of a course, go to LinkedIn Profile to the area about Me / Settings / Content Language. You can also change language in the footer of the LinkedIn Learning page.

What is the difference between a learning path and a collection?

What is the difference between a learning path and a collection?

Learning paths are compiled playlists of related video courses on a specific topic or career track. They include multiple courses by different expert instructors to teach a variety of skills and information associated with that subject or profession. They indicate a specific series of courses and videos taken in sequence.

Collections are also a group of courses and videos related to a specific topic, but they do not have a particular order, and do not need to be watched in sequence.
