LinkedIn Learning


LinkedIn Learning Toolkit

Great careers don’t just happen; they’re developed through a series of learnings and experiences. We want to see you succeed and help you get there. That’s why we launched a program of LinkedIn Learning. This program gives you access to more than 8,000 courses that can help you discover, develop, and refine skills to help you reach your goal.

Get started with LinkedIn Learning

1. Set up your LinkedIn Learning account

Start with the invitation email sent to you from LinkedIn Learning to activate your account.  After you've activated your account you can visit LinkedIn Learning and login with your State of Minnesota email address. When you first log in, you can connect your account with your personal LinkedIn account if you choose. After you log in, select your job title and any skills you’re interested in learning more about. Then let the learning begin! You’ll have access to all of the courses online or on the LinkedIn Learning mobile app. You’ll even receive personalized course recommendations from LinkedIn.

2. Create your development plan

With thousands of courses on countless topics, it can be difficult to know where to start. Use the Individual Development Plan document to identify your goals and areas of focus for your trainings. Discuss the development plan with your manager, who may also have some ideas to help support your development. Still not sure where to start? Check out some recommended learning paths.

3. Check off the required courses

All program participants are required to take two courses: an overview of using LinkedIn Learning and a course on building an inclusive work environment. Get started with these courses, and learn about other required courses from your agency. 

4. Keep your development conversations going

Throughout the program, keep conversations about your development going with your manager or mentor. Look for new areas of focus, dig deeper into a skill, or make course recommendations to others. All the courses you complete are tracked in LinkedIn Learning and in Enterprise Learning Management (ELM), so your development is accounted for in your learning record.
