A: Yes, with some extra steps:
A. In order to log in to GRC's LinkedIn Learning subscription, you will need to be a GRC student currently enrolled in credit classes, faculty, or staff member. The list of current Green River students is updated between quarters. For example, if you were a student in Winter Quarter but did not sign up for classes in Spring Quarter, your login may stop working over Spring Break.
Not sure if you are enrolled in classes? - Check your class schedule on the student portal: My Green River:
If you are not a current Green River student, faculty, or staff member but would like access to LinkedIn Learning, you may be able to sign in through the King County Library System or your local public library.
Our Green River log-in portal doesn't work well with the Kent/Auburn School District Chromebooks (because of security restrictions on the Chromebooks).
Please make sure your browser is up-to-date and clear out browsing history and cookies. That will hopefully clear out any old "memory" of an automatic connection that is causing a redirect issue.
On Chrome, that looks like this:
And here is how to clear your cache and cookies on other web browsers beyond Chrome:
A. Green River College changed student email domains in Fall 2021 (from '@mail.greenriver.edu' to '@student.greenriver.edu.') If you signed in with an old student account previously, items were saved under that previous email address. Holman Library is working on manually matching "old" accounts and saved items to the "new" @student.greenriver.edu," but saved playlists will be unavailable until accounts can be transitioned.
If you're not sure what your "new" @student.greenriver.edu email address is, and you are currently enrolled at GRC, you can look it up on our website!
A. If a link in the library's OneSearch does not connect directly to the video's page, try searching for the video title once you log in.
Links may not work perfectly while we update our records in our Holman Library OneSearch catalog-- we apologize for the inconvenience.
A. Some browsers may show an error message warning that "the web domain 'sts.student.greenriver.edu' may be unsafe" or "not private."
