How do I activate my LinkedIn Learning account?

All current SU members (students, faculty, and staff) are provided with a LinkedIn Learning Account. When activating your account, you will be prompted to connect it to an existing LinkedIn account that you may already have. If you chose to do this, you will be able to add badges earned by completing courses and videos directly to your LinkedIn profile to display your skills. This is not a requirement, but be aware that you will be prompted to sign in with your LinkedIn account credentials in conjunction with your SU credentials.
