What is LinkedIn Learning?

LinkedIn Learning is a company that offers online training for software, design, and business skills. LinkedIn Learning is a vast library of high quality, current, and engaging video tutorials.

What equipment do I need?

You can use your own equipment (computer, tablet or phone) or a UWE Bristol computer.

Apps are available for Apple iOS or Android devices.

How do I access LinkedIn Learning

We have migrated over to LinkedIn Learning. Follow the instructions in the email you will have received from LinkedIn in order to keep your user history.

Once we have migrated, you can simply go to www.uwe.ac.uk/trainingvideos and log in with your UWE Bristol username and password.

Alternatively, go to www.linkedin.com/learning, select 'Log in' and enter 'uwe.ac.uk' in the 'Log in through your organization or school' box.

How do I use it?

Once you are logged in you can search for videos by subject or software brand name, and then bookmark your favourite courses.

There are clear instructions and helpful videos on how to use LinkedIn Learning including a short 'Take a Tour' option when you first log in. There is also a more extensive 'how to use LinkedIn Learning' training module in LinkedIn Learning.

Exercise files allow you to test your progress, and you can print out 'certificates of completion' once you have completed a course.

You can edit your profile details, including language and email preferences.

If you download the mobile app, you can download courses to view later, when you don't have an internet connection - for example, on a long train journey.

Guidance for staff

Can students access the site?

Yes, students can access the site in the same way as staff, eg through these pages using their usual UWE Bristol username and password.

Can I use this as a part of my teaching?

Yes. For example, you can create playlists to share with a module group, or link from readinglists.ac.uk to relevant courses or directly into a relevant part of a course.

I’m a manager, how should I be using LinkedIn Learning to develop my staff?

LinkedIn Learning can be a valuable resource to help staff develop their skills. Encourage your staff to look at the site as part of their PDR process, or their ongoing personal development, and consider how it can support their role or progression.

Should I use LinkedIn Learning instead of Learning and Development courses?

LinkedIn Learning supplements the services provided by Human Resources' Learning and Development Centre. Further information on Learning and Development Centre courses.
