LinkedIn Learning

AUSU offered our members FREE access to video training and resources through Lynda.com for over 6 years. As of 2019, the Lynda.com service upgraded to LinkedIn Learning!

LinkedIn Learning is a premier video training website, with thousands of online courses taught by industry experts in technology, software, creative, and business skills. It is designed for all learner levels and is available whenever you’re ready to learn.

AUSU provides all members with FREE access to LinkedIn Learning, with a simple, one-point login using your Athabasca University student email account.

AU students especially benefit from training in Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Adobe, and many other software programs used for AU courses. You can also access training on Windows, Computer Programming, Photography, Photoshop, Graphics Design, Marketing, Game Design, and much more. Those seeking career help will benefit from the Business Skills courses, which include career development advice such as how to do well in an interview, and strategies for job searches.
