Logging into LinkedIn Learning with a new account


LinkedIn Learning (accessed through my.newpaltz.edu) connects learners with quality content to develop their skills and achieve their goals. Their staff instructors are industry experts who develop engaging, top-quality courses on a wide range of topics, including creative, business, and technology skills. All faculty, staff, and students have access to LinkedIn Learning. We encourage you to explore topics regularly and integrate these lessons into your course space for remedial, additional or core concept lessons.
