We have urgent news for faculty, staff, and students who use LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com). We are currently unable to issue new licenses for users. This means that anyone who is logging in to LinkedIn Learning for the first time is unable to create an account.
The issue is caused by the expiration of our contract with LinkedIn. While we began negotiating a new contract several weeks ago, it has simply taken longer than we anticipated. The University is diligently working to resolve the issue with LinkedIn Learning and hopes to have a signed contract as soon as possible, however, it is possible that if we do not complete negotiations shortly, we could lose all access to LinkedIn Learning. We recommend students use alternative sources for the time being, such as YouTube.com and Leatherby Libraries. LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com) is also available for free with your Orange County library card through the Orange County Library System.
We thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope to have the matter resolved as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the TechHub in DeMille Hall.
