Lost your LinkedIn Learning invite? We have you covered!

R U In?You may have received an e-mail invite from LinkedIn Learning a while back. Like lots of things in our busy lives, it may have also fallen through the cracks. While you can always create your LinkedIn Learning account by visiting smu.edu/linkedin and logging in with your SMU ID and password, we also wanted to let you know that we will soon be re-sending invitations to those who have received an invite before but never activated their account.

If you receive an invitation, just follow the instructions in the message to gain access to the thousands of hours of fantastic training content from LinkedIn Learning! Don’t know where to start on your learning journey? We have several blog posts with lots of great courses to explore. Also, LinkedIn Learning will also soon begin sending helpful course recommendations and course progression information to your SMU e-mail.

If you have any issues with your invitation or have any other questions, let the IT Help Desk know and we will be happy to help.
