Alexandra Johnston, Ph.D.
Assistant Teaching Professor Director, MA in Language & Communication
"LinkedIn Learning is an amazing source of professional development and upskilling that is provided as a free benefit to you as a member of the Georgetown community. I've recommended modules to my linguistics students to give them tools to be competitive during the hiring process (Communication Skills, Excel training, R, Python, Portfolio Design)."
Laura Velez Villa
MA in International Business & Policy
"LinkedIn Learning takes care of foundational learning that we all need to succeed in more advanced contexts at work, school and life. It's just a great complement to formalize and hone specific skills, and to chart your own lifelong learning journey."
Associate Director for Student Professional Development
"Employability skills like Tableau, Power BI, Python, Knime, and other data mining and visualization courses, in addition to Adobe suite and Advanced Office, are all courses I recommend to students on a daily basis as part of the Academic Internship Class INAF335 taught on Georgetown's Qatar campus.

Linking your account
Each user at Georgetown University has the choice to connect their Learning Profile with their LinkedIn Member Profile.
This option is not a requirement.
Additionally, every user has control over their privacy and the information they choose to share on their LinkedIn Profile. This can be reviewed, and updated via Setting and Privacy on their LinkedIn Profile Page.
The Georgetown University Library's licensing agreement with LinkedIn Learning specifies that only current faculty, students, and staff are able to access the system.
Many public library systems, like the DC Public Library and Arlington County Public Library, provide their residents with free access to Lynda.com and LinkedIn Learning. We recommend visiting your public library's website to see what type of online learning resources they provide.
