“SkillSoft will remain the system of record for required compliance training, as it reports into HCM,” said Janet Lowe, Director of Employee Learning and Development. However, Lynda.com provides certificates of completion for faculty and staff who want to document their work. When courses or learning paths are completed, course certifications can be displayed on a user’s LinkedIn profile as a badge.
“Employee Services will add ongoing Lynda.com resources and tips to its website,” Lowe said.
Both SkillSoft and Lynda.com can be accessed from your campus portal. Click on the CU Resources tab, and select Training to find the Lynda.com link. Single sign-on allows for immediate access to both learning tools.
