RE: upgrade to LinkedIn Learning this week

UC Santa Barbara Human Resources is excited to announce that our campus subscription is being upgraded to LinkedIn Learning.* Once the upgrade is complete, you will receive an email generated by LinkedIn Learning to activate your existing account. To enable, follow the link provided in the email.

The system-wide upgrade is scheduled for Monday, September 9, 2019, at which time you will no longer be able to access All of your completed and in-progress learning activity and history will be seamlessly transferred to LinkedIn Learning on your behalf.

When activating your LinkedIn Learning account, it will be completely optional to connect a LinkedIn profile to your LinkedIn Learning account. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, you can easily create one, and if desired, also connect it to your LinkedIn Learning account. For more information, see benefits of connecting your LinkedIn accounts.

For additional resources, visit this website about the upgrade to LinkedIn Learning or watch the Introducing LinkedIn Learning for users video.
