Adding LinkedIn Learning Content to Your Blackboard Course

Good news! We now have a building block that will allow you to link to LinkedIn Learning (formerly Liynda.com) courses from within your Blackboard course. LinkedIn Learning is a great resource to gain knowledge and skills on a myriad of topics. Rather than suck up time in your course to teach students how to use a piece of software, point them to LinkedIn Learning.

For this very quick process, here are the steps you need.

1. Navigate to Blackboard Course.
