LinkedIn Learning: Librarian FAQs

LinkedIn Learning: Librarian FAQs Laura Solomon (not verified) Thu, 09/13/2018 - 10:24

Librarian FAQs

What is the URL for LinkedIn Learning?
Each library has its own custom link. Your library's new link is https://www.linkedin.com/learning-login/go/oh####. ("oh####" will be your library's FSCS number.)
 
The LinkedIn Learning app asks patrons for a "Library ID." What is that?
Using the LinkedIn Learning app is not intuitive. After downloading the app, patrons will click "Sign In" then "Sign in with your library card." They are then asked to "Enter your Library ID." This ID is the library's FSCS number: oh0001, oh0002, oh0003, etc. (To find yours, contact OPLIN Support or look it up on the IMLS website.) 

To help your patrons with this process, here is a sample guide, and a version you can customize with your library's particular ID.

Are there training materials available to help us guide patrons through the new product?
What we have is linked from the Training section of our site.
 
Can patrons still access their old Lynda.com account information?
Patrons had until May 2022 to activate their LinkedIn Learning for Library account. After May 2022 that historical viewing data was deleted.
 
Are there MARC records we can load into our catalog?
Yes. Contact OPLIN Support to request the new MARC records.
 
Does LinkedIn store the library card number and PIN?
LinkedIn will encrypt and store the library card number for abuse prevention. PINs are not stored.
 
Will all the stats and information from Lynda Admin transfer over to LinkedIn Learning?
Basic usage metrics from July 2019 until Lynda.com became LinkedIn Learning is available from OPLIN's Database Usage Reporting Site. Libraries no longer have access to detailed user learning activity (such as certificates earned) or personally identifiable information (such as email addresses). 
 
OPLIN pulls only minimal LinkedIn Learning stats from the vendor—a count of videos watched. More usage metrics are available from the LinkedIn Learning admin; to request access to those, contact OPLIN Support.
 
I have concerns about the privacy of patron information that is to be shared with LinkedIn.
Online privacy is important, and it is good for librarians to inform themselves and to help educate their patrons. LinkedIn delayed their launch of LinkedIn Learning for Library so they could address librarians' concerns. The new platform collects no personally identifiable information (PII). More information about LinkedIn's general privacy policies and tools is available from their website.

Northstar was developed in response to the needs of job seekers who may lack the digital literacy skills needed to seek, obtain, and retain employment, as well as to perform other tasks in daily life. Northstar allows end users to freely take the assessments from anywhere via our homepage, but individuals can instead go to an approved testing location and obtain the Northstar Digital Literacy Certificate when they pass assessments. Certificates provide an important credential for employment, as even entry-level jobs increasingly require basic computer skills. Certificates also certify end user ability to complete computer skills needed in higher education, and demonstrate their ability to use social media and online information thoughtfully. If individuals do not pass, personalized assessment results provide a roadmap to relevant instruction, allowing them to retake the assessment once they have mastered the necessary skills. Northstar also includes learning resources to support adult learners to master the standards outlined. Learning resources include classroom curriculum that can be used in person or remotely, and Northstar Online Learning, which provides self-directed instruction and practice for individuals.

Northstar is used by over 2240 Adult Basic Education programs, colleges, nonprofits, workforce centers, government agencies, and businesses.
