LinkedIn Learning was licensed by a collective of groups across the university. After assessing its use, it was determined that it would not be renewed. Since TMU students and employees are eligible for access to LinkedIn Learning through Toronto Public Library, external link, the impact should be minimal.
At this time, there is no plan to reinstate campus-wide access to LinkedIn Learning. Individual departments or faculties may choose to license it in the future. In the meantime, you may consider signing up for LinkedIn Learning through Toronto Public Library, external link.
LinkedIn Learning tutorials may still be included in your course materials, as TMU students and employees are eligible for access to LinkedIn Learning through Toronto Public Library, external link. It is recommended that you provide your students with advanced notice so that they can obtain a TPL card and set up their account.
The Library is available to assist faculty and instructors in evaluating and selecting alternative resources.
Among the resources available in the TMU 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.
Another suitable alternative may be available through eCampusOntario’s Open Library, external link. Many of the open educational resources available in this library contain multimedia content and interactive learning activities.
