Though there is no official Learning solution integration, LinkedIn Learning supports the AICC standard for integration with the Learning solution. LinkedIn Learning courses and learning paths can be downloaded as AICC packages, ready to be added as lectures into your courses.
This article covers the suggested steps that are required to grant access to the LinkedIn Learning content to all members of the Academy, the launch experience, and the benefits of the Integration.
Activate AICC Integration in LinkedIn Learning Account
Navigation: LinkedIn Learning > Go to Admin > Me > Integrate
- From the side navigation menu, select Add content to your LMS via AICC.
- Open the Configure AICC panel.
- At the Hostname(s) field, enter the host name (scormengine.schoox.com).
- Set the AICC Integration toggle to Enabled.
Download Course Packages
Option 1: Download Course Packages for the Entire Library
- In the Integrate interface, open the Download AICC Packages panel.
- Select your language and library preference.
- Select Download package to begin the file download.
- On subsequent visits to this setting, you can download AICC packages for all new courses offered since the last download.
Option 2: Download Individual Course Packages
- Once you’ve set the AICC Integration toggle to Enabled, navigate to the Content tab in the menu bar and select Library.
- (Optional) Add content to a learning path or collection by selecting the Add button in the top right-hand corner of your library page.
- Select a course, collection, or learning path in your library.
- At the top right-hand side of the course page, select More, and select Download AICC Package. A zipped version of an AICC package downloads to your computer. You can then upload this package to your Academy.
Downloaded LinkedIn Learning courses can then be treated as any other lecture in the Learning solution.
Take LinkedIn Learning Courses in the Learning Solution
Learners will find LinkedIn Learning courses as they would any other lecture within a course. However, when they select the step a new window will appear, redirecting the learner to the course within the LinkedIn Learning website. They will need to log in with the LinkedIn Learning credentials.
Note: To ensure proper communication between LinkedIn Learning and the Learning solution, the LinkedIn Learning window must be closed by the learner.
To record a certificate from a LinkedIn Learning course, download it from your LinkedIn Learning account and upload it into your Learning solution account.
Considerations for Tracking and Reporting Need-to-Knows
- There is an Introduction and Conclusion chapter in all LinkedIn Learning courses. The Conclusion chapter is not required to complete the course.
- Quiz steps are not required to complete the course. Therefore, the Exam/Quiz score is not
available for LinkedIn Learning courses within the Learning solution and a possible failure in the Quiz step will not affect the user’s progress/completion.
- The following are tracked by the Learning solution
- Time spent with the LinkedIn Learning window open
- Number of times each course is accessed
- Quiz scores
- Completion — either 0% or 100% complete
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do my users log in to access the LinkedIn Learning courses?
A: Yes, all users must authenticate with LinkedIn Learning to access courses in their Academy/University.
Q: Can my users access LinkedIn Learning courses on a mobile device?
A: Yes, all users can access their LinkedIn Learning training either in the mobile App or in a mobile browser. However, users must authenticate with LinkedIn Learning to access courses on their mobile devices.
Q: If a user navigates to LinkedIn Learning directly, is their activity sent back to the Learning solution?
A: No. To communicate activity back to the Learning solution, content must be launched from the Academy/University. LinkedIn Learning does provide a “Learner Activity Outside LMS” report that specifically highlights any learning activity occurring outside of an LMS session. You may find his report helpful when you consolidate learning in your Academy.
Q: After launching a LinkedIn Learning course from my LMS, what activity gets reported back
to the LMS?
A: To communicate activity back to the Academy/University, you must launch content from the LMS. Both course completions and courses in progress report back to the LMS. The only activity that LinkedIn Learning reports back to the Learning solution resides in the course the user launched from the LMS. If a user then navigates into other courses, LinkedIn Learning does not report that viewing activity to the Learning solution. Therefore, users should launch each course viewing from the Academy/University.
Q: Does LinkedIn Learning support Sharable Content Object Reference Model (aka SCORM)?
A: No. A SCORM content package is a .zip file containing video content. All LinkedIn Learning content is hosted and viewed on linkedin.com.
Q: Can I integrate with LinkedIn Learning if my LMS is behind a firewall?
A: No. By design, the HTTP AICC Communication Protocol (HACP) requires that an LMS can communicate over the HTTP protocol.
