LinkedIn Learning

Previously known as Lynda.com, LinkedIn Learning is an online learning platform that offers training on topics such as software, technology, business and creative skills. Containing the full Lynda.com library, LinkedIn Learning provides thousands of current, high-quality courses.

Lynda.com was initially introduced through a three-year pilot project sponsored by IT Services, Human Resources, the Library, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, and Queen's School of Business. It has since been rebranded to LinkedIn Learning and is now available at Queen's through partnership with eCampus Ontario.
