Funded Access

There is no cost for full- and part-time Laurier students to take a LinkedIn Learning course and access is only available to currently registered students. Access is funded by the Government of Ontario through eCampusOntario as part of the Government of Ontario's Career KickStart strategy. Building on this opportunity, eCampusOntario successfully negotiated with LinkedIn Learning to secure the same level of access for faculty and staff as students at publicly funded colleges and universities in Ontario until fall 2020.
