Connecting your current LinkedIn account to your Learning Enterprise account

This option to link the accounts is available in the Settings of your LinkedIn account.

  1. Log in to your LinkedIn account.
  2. In the main navigation bar, under Me, select Settings.
  3. Scroll to the section titled Connect your LinkedIn account from your LinkedIn Learning account provided by your organization. You can connect or disconnect your account at any time.
