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

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

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 basic computer skills to 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 LinkedIn Learning - FAQs

Q: Can I log on to my GRC LinkedIn Learning (LiL) account on the LiL website?

A: Yes, with some extra steps:

  1. On the LinkedIn Learning homepage, select "Sign In":

  1. On the sign-in page, enter your Green River student email address ending in @student.greenriver.edu and click continue:

Sign in to LinkedIn Learning with student email address
 

  1. Select "Continue to Green River College." You will be redirected to the Green River sign in portal, where you can log in as normal with your student email address and email password.

LinkedIn Learning login, continue to GRC
 


Q. Why isn't my login working?

Update January 2022 - LinkedIn Learning is not available in Mainland China. 
Message from LinkedIn -
"
LinkedIn is preparing to sunset the local version of LinkedIn on the Chinese Mainland and launch a new jobs application designed to help companies find Chinese Mainland-based professionals. As part of the new experience, LinkedIn Learning will no longer be accessible to learners logging in from the Chinese Mainland."

 

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.

Use your @student.greenrver.edu email  address to sign in through Green River.

 

Not sure if you are enrolled in classes? - Check your class schedule on the student portal: My Green River:

Have you set a password for your student email account ending in @student.greenriver.edu?

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.


Other login troubleshooting tips to keep in mind:
Chromebooks (Auburn / Kent School District Laptops)

 

Our Green River log-in portal doesn't work well with the Kent/Auburn School District Chromebooks (because of security restrictions on the Chromebooks).

  • We suggest: trying a different computer if possible (or even a smartphone). Or if using another device is not possible - contact the Running Start office for assistance contacting ASD/KSD IT help with your Chromebook.
Clearing your browser cache and cookies

 

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:

  • Contact us at the library (librarian@greenriver.edu) - sending screenshots of any error messages or login errors you see will help us, too. Thank you!

Q. I had signed in to LinkedIn Learning through Green River before January 2022. Where are my saved items (playlists, viewing history, etc.)?

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!


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 in our Holman Library OneSearch catalog-- we apologize for the inconvenience.


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