LinkedIn Learning

Learning and growth at work, and in life, is a journey and life-long process. Valencia College is committed to your professional and personal development and we are excited to offer LinkedIn Learning to all employees.


What is LinkedIn Learning?

LinkedIn Learning is an online video course library taught by industry experts in software, creative, and business skills. It was founded in 1995 by Lynda Weinman as Lynda.com before being acquired in 2015 by LinkedIn. In 2017, Lynda.com was renamed, LinkedIn Learning.

With more than 15,000 courses and personalized recommendations, LinkedIn Learning allows you to discover, complete, and track courses related to your field and interests. Courses can be accessed with desktops and mobile devices. This leading, educational platform is now available to all Valencia College faculty and staff members.
