Check to see if your playlist was converted to a LinkedIn Learning collection.

Do you see a LinkedIn Learning collection with the same name as your Lynda.com playlist?

Click Share to generate a URL/link that you can share with others.

  • All LinkedIn members: allows you to share the URL/link with any LinkedIn member with access to LinkedIn Learning.

sharing URL

If you select All LinkedIn members, you’ll be provided with two separate share URLs – one for learners outside your organization and one for learners at your organization.

After copying the link, you can paste it into a document to save it for later use. Or if you're ready now, you can paste it into an email or on TITANium to share it with students.

Click the X to close the window when you are done. You can always return to this screen to retrieve the sharing URL.

Unfortunately, you will need to re-create the playlist as a collection. Then you can create a link to share the collection with others.
