LinkedIn Learning

How Bryant Faculty can use LinkedIn Learning within their Blackboard Courses

In many courses there are required or supplemental skills that will increase a student’s ability to be successful. For example, in a Business class, students may need working knowledge of Microsoft Excel to successfully complete assignments. However, teaching Excel in-class may not fit into the course structure. As an option, LinkedIn Learning has professional video tutorials on these types of skills that instructors can provide for students without having to take away in-class time from teaching course content.

All Bryant faculty, students, and staff have access to LinkedIn Learning, and instructors can assign a lesson, or sections of a course, for students to complete as part of the course requirment. Alternately, the instrucotr can refer students to those courses as a resource to increase their skills in these areas if they need extra instruction.
