LinkedIn Learning in Canvas: Embedding Content using the Rich Content Editor

You can embed LinkedIn Learning content using the Rich Content Editor in Canvas.

The option to embed LinkedIn Learning content in the body of an assignment, discussion, page, etc. is available wherever you see the Rich Content Editor. Note: This only embeds the content. It does not track the completion of the course or video.

  1. In the drop-down menu next to Apps, select View All. (You will only need to do this the first time. LinkedIn Learning will be listed in the drop down in the future)
