How is my LinkedIn profile related to my LinkedIn Learning account?

As of September 17, 2019, your Linked in Learning account has not been linked to your LinkedIn profile (if any).

As a result:

  • Content recommendations are based only on your LinkedIn Learning activity and do not include insights from LinkedIn.com.
  • Questions and answers about courses are not displayed.
  • Content does not appear in the feed on LinkedIn.com.
  • Skills and certificates of completion acquired through taking courses cannot be added to your LinkedIn profile.

Why is my LinkedIn profile no longer linked to my LinkedIn Learning account?

Currently, Columbia University has decided to disable the connection between your LinkedIn Learning profile and LinkedIn for privacy reasons, as users could not manually unpair these accounts themselves.

Due to this decision, please note:

  • If you have previously linked your LinkedIn profile to your LinkedIn Learning account, a new activation email has been sent to you.
  • If you started and completed your learning between August 7, 2019 and September 17, 2019, your learning history will not appear on the LinkedIn Learning platform for that period.

As director of the Law School's Mediation Clinic, Alexandra Carter ’03 has been training students in various forms of alternative dispute resolution since 2008. Under her guidance, students learn negotiation strategies and advise clients in federal, state, and New York courts; Cases range from family business disputes to complaints filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In 2016, Carter partnered with the United Nations Institute for Education and Research and their students are the exclusive providers of alternative dispute resolution classes for the United Nations Diplomatic Corps in New York. She is currently training judicial and administrative directors in New York state courts which will soon require most civil disputes to be resolved through alleged mediation rather than in public courts. In 2019, Columbia University honored Carter with the Presidential Award for Teaching for its innovative pedagogy and commitment to its students. Carter developed her passion for mediation and teaching as a student at the Law School's Mediation Clinic, led by Professor Carol Liebman, who became her mentor and role model. As a student, Carter won the Jane Marks Murphy Prize for Clinical Advocacy and the Lawrence S. Greenbaum Prize for Best Oral Argument in the 2002 Harlan Fiske Stone Moot Court Competition. Prior to enrolling in Law School, Carter was a private equity analyst with Goldman Sachs and Fulbright Fellow in Taiwan, where she researched contemporary literature to assess cross-strait political tensions. After Carter got her J.D. received, she worked on the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and then joined Cravath, Swaine & Moore as a litigator. She was retired to the academy by Liebman and other mentors from Columbia Law School. Carter's new take on negotiation is the subject of her upcoming general interest book Ask for More: 10 Questions to Negotiate Anything, which will be the main title published by Simon & Schuster in May 2020.

What are tendonitis and tendinitis? Tendons are strong strands of tissue that connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis is when a tendon is inflamed. It can hit any tendon in the body. When a tendon is inflamed, it can cause swelling, pain, and discomfort. Another problem called tenosynovitis is linked to tendonitis. This is the inflammation of the lining of the tendon sheath around a tendon. Usually the vagina is inflamed by itself, but both the vagina and tendon can be inflamed at the same time.
