LinkedIn Learning Horizontal Blue Logo


LinkedIn Learning is a fabulous video-based on-demand instruction resource that is available to all active academic year faculty, staff, and students, both here and at Monterey.  You can learn new skills to help at school, work or home by watching short, 2 to 3-minute movies or by working through an entire course. 

Please note that learners in China once again have access to all LinkedIn Learning content, effective May 1, 2023.  Access to some social features, however, is limited. See our blog post to learn more.

This isn’t only about technology, either.  Yes, there are courses on just about every piece of software you can think of, but there are also “soft skill” topics such as resume writing, interviewing techniques, customer service, and leadership.  If you want to develop your creative side, there are courses for that as well, including photography, music, and animation.

Getting Started

  1. Type http://go/LIL/ (or from off campus) in your browser’s address field, then press Enter or Return.
  2. From the LinkedIn Learning prompt, provide your full Middlebury email address, then click Continue.
  3. Provide your Middlebury account password, if prompted.
  4. You’ll be asked about your upcoming goals so courses can be recommended — or you can choose I don’t know.  (You can change your goals at any time.)
  5. You’ll be offered the choice of connecting an existing LinkedIn account you may have to your LinkedIn Learning details; this is strictly optional.
  6. When your account setup is complete, You’re ready to get started is displayed, along with any course recommendations for you.
  7. Use the “what do you want to learn today” search field at the top of the window to find videos or courses of interest, or click a general subject area under Browse at left to view course groupings by subject, software title, learning paths and more.
  8. Check out topics of interest in the short course called “How to use LinkedIn Learning” (under 45 min total) to learn basic navigation and details about LinkedIn Learning course offerings.  This is worth a look!
