What does the LinkedIn integration do? 

  • Once your LinkedIn integration is set up, courses from LinkedIn will appear in Learn Amp as items.
  • Each item contains a deep link to the course in LinkedIn.
  • When you launch one of these, our platform will create a pop-up, through which users will be able to access LinkedIn’s content.
  • When learners complete content on the LinkedIn system (when they have launched the pop-up from a link within the platform), completion activity will be reported back into the Learn Amp platform. 
  • If they complete content on the LinkedIn platform, it will be marked as started and complete on their Learn Amp profile.

    How can I use the LinkedIn integration? 

    Please note, this is from the perspective of a Learner role. For all other roles, it will also work the same.

    Step 1: Search for a topic in the Library

    • Go to the Library.
    • Search for a topic that you would like to learn about on LinkedIn.
    • Ensure that you have selected "Course" in the filter, to ensure that only LinkedIn courses appear.

     

    Step 2: Select the chosen course 

    • Select which course you'd like to learn about.
    • Press the button "Take this course".

     

    Step 3: Complete the course in LinkedIn

    • The button will then launch you into the LinkedIn website.
    • Complete the course on the LinkedIn website.

     

    The Learn Amp platform will then report on this:

    • The Learn Amp platform will then automatically report on actions completed on the LinkedIn site.
    • If you complete the course in LinkedIn, this will be reported in Learn Amp.
    • There are no further actions required on your part.

    Please see the example below, where the user's actions from LinkedIn have been synced into their Learn Amp Activity Log.

    FAQ:

    I've completed a course in LinkedIn but it hasn't shown up in Learn Amp. What's happened? 

    If you've completed a course in LinkedIn but it's not showing up yet as "Completed" in Learn Amp, please do not worry.

    There is a daily sync between LinkedIn and Learn Amp every 24 hours. 

    If it has been longer than 24 hours, then please get in touch.
