  • Paste the URL as a New Link in the appropriate place in VU Collaborate, then amend the link by adding &auth=true at the end of the URL link you pasted (no spaces). For e.g.:
    • https://www.linkedin.com/learning/learning-excel-2019/add-formulas-and-functions?u=22952571&auth=true

Embedding LinkedIn Learning videos into VU Collaborate unavailable

  • Unfortunately embedding LinkedIn Learning content directly into VU Collaborate is NOT possible - Content must be linked instead (see above).
