LinkedIn Learning for Faculty
Faculty can align LinkedIn Learning content to complement their curriculum by covering trending hard and soft skills. LinkedIn Learning content can also help flip the classroom, freeing up time in class for discussion, practice, application, and feedback. This approach can provide deeper learning for students and a more rewarding experience for faculty.
Weave LinkedIn Learning into the curriculum — technology is changing at a pace textbooks cannot keep up with. To fill that gap, weave LinkedIn Learning and its 60+ new courses each week into the curriculum to cover the latest skills, while faculty can focus on foundations, discussion, and practice.

LinkedIn Learning FAQs:
- Q: How do we define "Credits Earned"? Are those different from completing a course?
Each of the third-party organizations (PMI, NASBA, SHRM, etc.) sets its own standards and requirements for what counts as a credit, what they call the credit, and what actions a learner must take to earn it.
LinkedIn Learning uses each organization's individual definition to display the credits learners earn. For example, a learner watching NASBA courses must watch all videos, and earn at least 70% on the exam at the end of the course in order to earn credits. For all other programs, the learner must simply watch all the videos.
- Q: Can I earn partial credits for an eligible course that I started watching but haven’t fully completed?
Unfortunately, you’ll have to complete the course to earn credits for it. We don’t provide partial credits for eligible courses.
- Q: Will LinkedIn Learning report the information about my attainment of Continuing Education Credits to each third-party organization?
No. LinkedIn Learning doesn’t report Continuing Education credits earned on behalf of the learners or their organizations.
