Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning - Redirect Links

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

After the LinkedIn Learning upgrade on August 26, 2019, links from Lynda.com that end with ?org=uwm.edu  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 update links from Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning:

1. Log in to LinkedIn Learning at: https://uwm.edu/linkedinlearning

2. Click on the Lynda.com link that you had been sharing to other users.
If the link redirects to LinkedIn Learning:

1. If the video does not begin to auto play, push the play button to start the video. Once the video is running, in the address bar of the browser, copy the link to the video.
