On July 16, ITS will upgrade all UI Lynda.com accounts to LinkedIn Learning.  

Additional information about the upgrade:  

  • On July 16 the service will be down most of the day as the upgrade is completed.   
  • On July 16 all Lynda.com links will redirect to LinkedIn Learning. However, Lynda.com will sunset at the end of 2019, so we recommend updating links shortly after July 16. We will do our best to notify known webmasters of sites with Lynda.com references.  
  • UI students, faculty, and staff will receive system generated correspondence from LinkedIn Learning before the upgrade.
