Use LinkedIn Learning in Your Course

Last updated on October 19, 2021

LinkedIn Learning provides a wide variety of video courses about business, technology, creative skills, and more. All MSUD students and faculty have access to LinkedIn Learning, so it is a great resource for supplementing your course materials or supporting students who need remediation. One way to use LinkedIn Learning is to embed a single video on a page in your Canvas course. Another method is to link to an entire course and direct students to view certain videos. Both methods are described below.
