Do I need to have a LinkedIn account to use LinkedIn Learning / Why is LinkedIn Learning asking me to connect my LinkedIn account?

When you log into LinkedIn Learning for the first time, the system creates a LinkedIn Learning account for you and gives you the option to connect that account to a traditional LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn Learning accounts are not the same as LinkedIn profiles and you are not required to have a LinkedIn profile in order to access LinkedIn Learning content through Harvard. If you do choose to connect your LinkedIn Learning account to a LinkedIn profile, the system will be able to provide you with a more personalized learning experience and you'll be able to access your LinkedIn Learning history and record of course completions after leaving Harvard.
