LinkedIn Learning: Always Be Learning

Introducing the LinkedIn Learning LTI Tool!

LinkedIn Learning logoSMU has offered LinkedIn Learning as a valuable tool for students, faculty, and staff for several years now. Thousands have utilized this service to better themselves in technical and professional skills. Now, we have a BIG announcement for faculty that would like to use LinkedIn Learning content in their courses. LinkedIn Learning now has a Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) tool integrated into Canvas!

This new tool allows faculty members to directly integrate LinkedIn Learning videos and courses into their Canvas course content. Not only can you embed content in pages, discussion posts, and assignment instructions, but you can also create graded assignments using LinkedIn Learning content that will automatically be graded upon student completion of the content! Check out this video for additional details on how it works:

For more information on using this new tool in your courses, contact your local Academic Technology Service Director for assistance. We hope you enjoy this new way to feature LinkedIn Learning in your courses!
