Using Library Resources in Canvas

This guide details how to use and embed library resources in Canvas so that students can access the content you have chosen.

Link to a LinkedIn Learning Course

Note: LinkedIn Learning only allows for direct links to whole courses. Linking to individual videos or other resources is not enabled. Regardless of which video within a course you use to grab the link, the link will direct to the first video in the course.
