A new tool to support your learning
LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) is available to all BU students to use. With over 13,000 courses to choose from, you can select online learning courses relevant to your study at BU as well as courses to support the development of vocational skills such as teamworking, leadership and problem solving that will help you in the world of work.
Getting started with LinkedIn Learning
Please login to LinkedIn Learning and bookmark this link for future use.
- If you are new to LinkedIn Learning you may be asked to login using your BU username and password.
- If you navigate to LinkedIn Learning from a search engine, you will be asked to sign into LinkedIn first, assuming you have a personal account (if not, it is easy to create one). If you have a personal LinkedIn account, enter your LinkedIn credentials and proceed to the single-sign-on page which will take you through to the BU LinkedIn Learning site.
Once you’re in, browse around, take a course and learn something new. You can even add your newly learnt skills to your personal LinkedIn profile. Here are a few examples of the learning material available:
- How to use LinkedIn Learning
- Learn about preparing for interviews
- Develop your skills in self-reflection and awareness
- Learn more about time management techniques
Help is available
