While it is true that anyone at the College, faculty, staff or students have access to LinkedIn Learning through Office 365, supervisors have the ability to request courses for departments and/or individuals within Cougar ED (Absorb). If a faculty or staff member has a course assigned to them, in order for Cougar ED to maintain records of the course access will need to be through Cougar ED instead of Office 365. Further more, some of those assigned courses are not LinkedIn Learning courses.
