We welcome and encourage you to start using LinkedIn Learning. HR will help take the guess work out of learning by creating multi-course “learning paths” for different roles. In general, LinkedIn Learning courses will be optional for employees. Over time, we will design learning paths that are required for certain roles or before transfer or promotion to another position. For example, managers may be expected to complete courses on coaching employees, preparing a budget, or presentation skills. All staff may be expected to complete basic courses on the Microsoft Office suite, including Word, Excel and Outlook. This will allow the University to establish a common standards for all members of the community.
Work-related online computer courses are available to University employees. Visit www.ed2go.com/suemptrng for course offerings which include: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, Time Management, Business Writing and Effective Communication among others.
