Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning - Redirect and Update Links

This article describes how to update links so that they properly redirect from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning after the upgrade.

After the LinkedIn Learning upgrade on August 26, 2019, clicking on a link from Lynda.com will redirect to the same course in LinkedIn Learning. The redirects will work through the Fall 2019 semester. After the Fall 2019 semester, Lynda.com links will no longer redirect to LinkedIn Learning. 

To ensure that links redirect properly after the upgrade, use Lynda.com links for sharing within the organization. To get this link, in the upper right corner of the course screen, click Share. Copy the link for either Share this video within your organization or Share this course within your organization.

Starting on August 27, 2019 you can begin to change your links from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning. For the links to continue to work, you must switch them to LinkedIn Learning links by the end of the Fall 2019 semester. 

To update links from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning:

1. Click on the Lynda.com link that you had been sharing to other users.

2. The link will automatically redirect to the course in LinkedIn Learning.

3. In LinkedIn Learning, click the Share icon in the upper right corner of the course page.

4. In the window that appears, click Copy to copy the embed code for the video.
