Connecting your RRC Polytech LinkedIn Learning account to your personal LinkedIn profile

LinkedIn Learning includes the option to connect your existing personal LinkedIn account. It is never mandatory to have a LinkedIn account as staff or student, nor is one necessary to access LinkedIn Learning.

For faculty, this means ensuring that students understand they have options to view LinkedIn Learning content and are not required to connect their accounts.

If you change your mind, you have the option to connect your profile at a later time. You can also disconnect by following the instructions here.

Benefits of connecting your profile

  • Easy access directly from LinkedIn.com
  • Experience more personalized learning with recommendations based on your professional profile and what others in your role or industry are learning
  • Keep learning with high-quality, expert-led learning recommendations as you scroll down your newsfeed. One click and the course starts playing right in your newsfeed.

1. You can choose to connect your RRC Polytech LinkedIn Learning account with your personal LinkedIn.com profile, or not. Connecting your accounts is optional. If you change your mind down the road, you can connect/disconnect your accounts at a later time.

2. You may get asked to sign in to LinkedIn if you haven’t logged in recently.

3. You will be asked to confirm your identity, review the privacy policy, and accept to connect your accounts.

4. You will be prompted to personalize your LinkedIn Learning experience before getting started.

5. Done
