LinkedIn Learning (Formerly Lynda.com)

In 2015, LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com and subsequently began working with existing clients to migrate their Lynda.com accounts and content into its own LinkedIn Learning platform. In late August 2019, all Lynda.com accounts and content for Pace University members were automatically migrated over to the new LinkedIn Learning platform. The new service will deliver the same Lynda.com content through an enhanced new learning experience from the LinkedIn network, and clients will continue to experience the same high-quality Lynda.com content to which they have become accustomed.

Please note that if you had any pre-existing learning history saved in your Lynda.com account, you must log in to LinkedIn Learning by March of 2020 to keep that content. Otherwise, all saved history will be lost. Please see activation and login steps below.

Note

Activation/Login Steps:

  1. If you had any existing learning activity, playlists, or past history, in your Lynda.com account, you just need to log in to your new LinkedIn Learning account before March of 2020 to validate your account and retain all your content. You can log in by visiting www.pace.edu/LIL (MyPace Portal username and password required). After logging in, at the top, click the Me dropdown and then review any migrated content saved under the My Learning section.

  2. If you never logged in to Lynda.com or didn’t have any content saved or in progress, then there is nothing that you need to do. However, we invite you to log in (www.pace.edu/LIL) and explore the thousands of videos and courses available to you in a variety of categories.

Logging in for the first time? Read below.

The first-time you log in to LinkedIn Learning, you may get prompted to connect your LinkedIn profile to you LinkedIn Learning account. It is not necessary to connect these 2 accounts.

Note

LinkedIn Learning is a separate service available from LinkedIn and whether or not you have an existing LinkedIn account does not affect access to your LinkedIn Learning content. Therefore, you do not have to associate your LinkedIn account with your LinkedIn Learning account in order to retain your Lynda.com content.

  1. If prompted, select Continue without LinkedIn and select Do not connect my account.

  2. Select Get Started

  3. Select a category to explore or select Show me all
