LinkedIn Learning - FREE CONTENT

  • LinkedIn Learning Content: On 3/24/20, we received word that LinkedIn Learning had unlocked some of their most popular courses regarding working remotely and teaching online. In this time of great transition, we wanted to share these resources with you in hopes that you will benefit from them and put new skills and knowledge into action.


  • Throughout April 2020, this vendor opened up their entire collection of online training at no cost. We hope that you were able to benefit from their generosity. As of May 1, they have scaled back their free offerings to include only past conference content, but there is still a lot of great stuff to take advantage of through July 1, 2020. In general, Pluralsight content is slanted very much toward individuals that work or have an interest in highly technical matters including software development, IT operations, business practices, cyber security, manufacturing, and more. Feel free to share this opportunity with colleagues and students. Please, note that CMU has no formal agreement with Pluralsight and that there is no guarantee of ongoing University funding for memberships.
