* The Ministry of Colleges and Universities discontinued the full provincial licence access to LinkedIn Learning for faculty, staff and students effective September 2020. In response, Information Technology Services and HR and Equity divisions at University of Toronto procured a limited institutional licence to meet the learning needs of staff and faculty through to August 2021. The number of licences available is based on projected demand over the coming year and anticipates accommodation of all active staff and faculty users of this service.

To ensure ongoing support to students in their co-curricular and professional skills development, the University is pleased to offer Coursera for University of Toronto as an alternative resource.
