How to log on at GRC: LinkedIn Learning (prev. Lynda.com)

This guide explains how to access your student email, Canvas classes, Microsoft Office, and campus computers.

Green River LinkedIn Learning

Green River students, Faculty, and Staff have access to LinkedIn Learning with Lynda.com content, including video tutorials on a variety of subjects from 3D animation to web development.

Use the instructions on this page to learn how to set up your Green River profile if you are new user, or how to log in or change your password if you have an existing Green River LinkedIn Learning account.

Important: You are required to be a currently registered GRC student, staff, or faculty member to access the college's LinkedIn Learning subscription. If you are not a current GRC student, faculty, or staff member but live within King County, you can sign up for access through King County Library System.

GRC Students:
  • Username - Your student ID number. 
  • Password - Use your GRC Network password - this is the same password that you use to log on to campus computers.
    • Don't know your GRC ID number? Contact the Holman Library Reference Desk and a librarian can help you.
    • Are you a current student who is having trouble logging on in-between quarters?
      • GRC resets student network passwords each quarter. If you are using your password from the previous quarter and it is not working, or you do not know your password, try resetting your GRC network password online.
 
GRC Faculty and Staff:
  • Username - Your GRC email address.
  • Password - Use your GRC Admin Network password - this the password you use to sign on to computers on-campus.
    • If you need help with your Green River Network employee password, please contact the GRC IT Help Desk (using the link below)

If this is your first time signing in to LinkedIn Learning, you will be asked to set up your LinkedIn Learning account. You can either (1) connect a LinkedIn account or (2) log in without connecting a LinkedIn account:

Q. Why isn't my log in working?

A. In order to log in to GRC's LinkedIn Learning subscription, you will need to be a current GRC student, 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.

If you are a current GRC student and your login is not working, you can try resetting your network password online.

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.  


Q. A link in the library catalog to a LinkedIn video did not work. How can I find the video again?

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 from the older "Lynda.com" content to the new LinkedIn Learning in our Holman Library OneSearch catalog-- we apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have it working again soon.


Q. I see a security warning when I try to sign on. How can I access the Green River portal?

A. Some browsers may show an error message warning that "the web domain 'sts.student.greenriver.edu' may be unsafe" or "not private." 

If you see this message, you can still access the sign on page by clicking on (1) "Show Advanced" and then (2) "Proceed to 'sts.student.greenriver.edu' anyway..."
