LinkedIn Learning with Brightspace

LinkedIn Learning

Did you know BU has a licence for LinkedIn Learning?

In 2022, BU purchased a campus wide licence for LinkedIn Learning allowing all staff and students to access the suite of 13,000+ courses. And due to its integration with Brightspace, you can embed courses and videos directly into the content area of your unit.

If you’re new to LinkedIn Learning, it’s a great way to complement your existing teaching and online content and allows students to add any completed courses to their LinkedIn profile, showcasing their skills to potential employers.

As subject matter experts, you are best placed to decide which courses and videos will directly complement your unit, but here are a few ideas to help get you started.

Have you set your students an assignment that requires them to give a presentation?
