LinkedIn Learning (upgraded from Lynda.com)
LinkedIn Learning, the University’s new online learning service, has some good video resources on Blackboard Learn, Collaborate and teaching online. Don’t be put off by the length of the courses as they are fully searchable. LinkedIn Learning is an upgrade to Lynda.com which launched in 2018 at the University. All staff and students at the University of Edinburgh have an entitlement to a LinkedIn Learning account.
Here is the Blackboard Essential Training Link.
