upgraded to LinkedIn Learning on July 29

University of Waterloo faculty, staff and students can now access web based training from LinkedIn Learning using their WatIAM credentials.  

LinkedIn Learning offers:

  • Just-in-time training, as in-class courses may not be offered when you need them
  • Over 13,000 online courses to help you learn software, creative, IT, and business skills
  • Unlimited access to online courses available 24x7
  • Courses for all levels that cover technical skills, creative techniques, business strategies, and more

  • Top experts who are passionate about teaching

  • Watch from your computer, tablet, or mobile device. Switch back and forth as you choose

  • Create and save lists of courses you want to watch, and share them with friends or colleagues


This training complements IST's IT Professional Development (ITPD) program. For example, you may want to learn Microsoft Excel in a lab setting through the SEW program and then learn more advanced features as you need them through LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn Learning is also an excellent resource to learn about the new features in an application.

Who can use this service:

  • Students
  • Graduate Students
  • Instructors
  • Faculty
  • Researchers
  • Staff
