The University of Reading has licensed LinkedIn Learning for all current students, meaning you have access to thousands of courses!
We’ve put together a range of recommended courses from the platform, specifically to support you at different stages of your career journey and boost your employability.
Accessible through your usual University of Reading login credentials, LinkedIn Learning is an online educational platform that allows you to develop skills through professional and expert-led video tutorials based around three main themes – Business, Technology & Creative. It is flexible – access it through your web browser or via the iOS/Android app for mobile devices, learn at your own pace with bite-size and longer content, full playback controls, time-coded transcripts and the ability to download content for offline use.
As an optional step, you can connect your learning with your LinkedIn profile if you have one, allowing you to display certificates of course completion to enhance your profile. LinkedIn Learning courses can also be used towards your RED Award.
Where do I access it?
LinkedIn Learning is accessed by going directly to the LinkedIn Learning homepage and clicking the ‘Sign in’ button at the top of the screen, then entering your UoR email address and clicking ‘Continue’ to allow login with UoR Username and Password credentials.
