Did You Know Tufts is Transitioning from LinkedIn Learning to Udemy for Business in August
In August, Tufts’ contract with LinkedIn Learning is set to expire. As part of the renewal process, we evaluated our usage and compare alternative products that might meet our needs. Our research brought to light a subscription service – Udemy for Business – that has access to similar content as LinkedIn Learning while also offering an extensive technology course library. Based on cost differential and the positive feedback we received from our trial of Udemy in June, Tufts decided to transition from LinkedIn Learning to Udemy for Business in August at the end of our contract with LinkedIn Learning.
Since 2015, Tufts has been offering this type of online learning platform for faculty, staff, and students to learn at their own pace. Starting with Lynda.com which then become LinkedIn Learning and now we will continue this offering in Udemy for Business. If you are attached to the LinkedIn Learning platform – no worries – anyone living, working, or studying in Massachusetts can request a Boston Public Library ecard and get FREE access to LinkedIn Learning!
If you are a current LinkedIn Learning user and have information you want to save prior to the transition on August 1, you can:
- Download course completion certificates from your Learning History
- Connect your personal LinkedIn account to your LinkedIn Learning profile if you haven't already done so. This will ensure that if you get access to LinkedIn Learning in the future (either with a personal or organization account), your past learning history will be available.
- To connect your profile, navigate to the Q&A feature on any course and you'll be prompted to connect.
Once Udemy becomes available to the community, we will share information on how to access the service.
If you have any questions about the transition, please contact Karen Gratiano, TTS Assistant Director for IT Educational Programming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
