LinkedIn Learning Cancellation – How to Use After Emory Access is Gone!

You may have seen the recent announcement that the university will not be renewing its subscription to LinkedIn Learning. Oct 18, 2021 is the last day you will have access at Emory. 

We will miss access to this great resource as part of our Emory privileges, but there is some good news. LinkedIn Learning is available via the Atlanta Fulton Public Libraries and all Emory University students, faculty and staff are eligible for free access by applying for an Atlanta Fulton Public Library System (AFPLS) library card, regardless of where they reside. Emory Healthcare employees who are also University employees are also eligible for a card.

How Can I Get a Library Card – and Remote Access to LinkedIn Learning?

You can apply online or take your Emory ID to one of the AFPLS branch libraries and get your card there. If you are a Fulton County resident, you can also use your driver’s license to get a library card.

Additionally, the Woodruff Library hosts Pop-Up Public Library Card Drives about twice a year (NOTE: scheduling for these is unclear at this time due to COVID-19).  

Following is some additional, very important information about the change in Emory’s access to LinkedIn Learning: 

What is the Impact on my LinkedIn Learning Account and History? 

Note: if you would like to preserve your learning history, you must take action before Oct. 18, 2021 if you do not have a LinkedIn-connected profile. 

  • Your learning history, which includes a list of courses completed, course certifications, and tracking for your current course viewing, will be lost if you do not have your LinkedIn Learning account connected to your LinkedIn Profile.  
  • There is an option to manually download your individual learning history. To do so, go to the “My Learning” menu in the “Me” account button on the LinkedIn Learning interface and then click “Learning History.” Beside each course there is a “more” button drop-down where you can download your certificates or add them to your LinkedIn profile. 
  • Emory employees can also upload their learning history into ELMS so that it is connected to their Emory learning transcript. You can do this by logging into Peoplesoft HR, going to “My Learning” and then clicking on the “Supplemental Learning” tab on the left. 

What is the Impact on my LinkedIn Profile? 

  • If you connected a LinkedIn Learning account with a public LinkedIn profile at or after sign-up, your learning history will remain tied to your LinkedIn account and can be transferred to a future LinkedIn Learning subscription when you re-establish access with another LinkedIn Learning license. Your learning history will not be available for viewing until you have access to a LinkedIn Learning license.  
  • If you do not have your LinkedIn Learning account connected to your public LinkedIn profile, your learning history, which includes a list of courses completed, course certifications, and tracking for your current course viewing, will be lost on October 18. Your learning history will start fresh if you re-establish access to LinkedIn Learning in the future. See these instructions for how to connect your profile prior to Oct. 18. 
  • There is an option to manually download your individual learning history. To do so, go to the “My Learning” menu in the “Me” account button on the LinkedIn Learning interface and then click “Learning History.” Beside each course there is a “more” button drop-down where you can download your certificates or add them to your LinkedIn profile.
