Linkedin Learning - How to create a new account

This article walks through the steps for setting up a new account in LinkedIn Learning.

7. On the LinkedIn Learning Welcome page, click "Continue without LinkedIn". If you would like to connect a LinkedIn account that you already have, you can click Connect my LinkedIn account. 
NOTE: If you used your UW-Platteville email address to create your personal LinkedIn account, ITS strongly recommends changing that address in LinkedIn.  Your UW-Platteville email is tied to your status as an employee or student.  When you leave the University, your access to that email account ends.  Also, for security reasons, you should not use your UW-Platteville email or username to establish other accounts. If you have questions about this, please contact the ITS Help Desk (info below).

9. Next, personalize your learning by clicking the "Sounds good" button. LinkedIn will now ask you a series of questions that will help pinpoint some of the things that you are interested in. Note that no matter what you choose, you will always be able to go back and browse and find training that interests you.
