Accessing LinkedIn Learning

Go to myHilltop and search for the LinkedIn Learning task or go directly to LinkedIn Learning

Connecting for the first time

The first time you log in, you have the option to connect your personal LinkedIn profile with the LinkedIn Learning account you have through St. Edward’s. 

Connecting your LinkedIn profile means LinkedIn Learning will tailor more closely video and course recommendations to your interests, your skills, and your field. You can also add completed courses and certificates to your LinkedIn profile.

Note: If you wish to share content via an embedded video in Canvas, you must connect your LinkedIn account with LinkedIn Learning.

Of course, you don’t have to connect the two. If you do, we want you to know what St. Edward’s LinkedIn Learning admins can and can’t see about you. 
  • CAN see LinkedIn Learning courses you’ve viewed or completed
  • CAN see your basic LinkedIn Learning profile information
  • CAN’T see your LinkedIn connections or your private messages
  • CAN’T see job search activity on LinkedIn 
If you want to connect your LinkedIn profile, click Connect my LinkedIn account
