Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a LinkedIn Learning account to use the resources?

Yes, you do. The search results provide a link to the courses and videos, but to access them, you are required to log into LinkedIn Learning.

How do I get access to LinkedIn Learning?

Please ask your institution or organisation if they have an enterprise license. If not, you can purchase an individual license. Please contact your organisation or see the LinkedIn Learning license options for details – we cannot help further with this.

What is the difference between a ‘course’ and a ‘video’?

Courses include various activities and resources such as videos, learning groups, exercises, and exams. You may be eligible for a certificate upon completion.

Videos are individual resources. These are component parts of courses, but in the context of search results on they are simply an individual video for you to watch.

Which search option is best for me?

If you know the area you wish to find resources for (e.g. writing, presentations) then using the Keyword Search will give you results for all resources which contain that keyword.

If you know the Researcher Development Framework domain that you want to develop as part of your professional development, then using the Step-by-step Search will give you a list of courses within the domain (and other filters) that you select.

Where can I find more information about the Researcher Development Framework?

Further information about the Researcher Development Framework can be found on the Vitae Researcher Development Framework website.

Why might I see a course offered with different Domains/Subdomains?

A course might align with the learning outcomes of multiple RDF pathways and our algorithm is set up in a way that it ensures learning material can be found by any matching parameter.

How do you ensure the content on the RDFmapped website stays up to date?

Our site has a weekly scheduled maintenance on Wednesdays at 4:30 am UTC to keep our database up to date with the content offered on LinkedIn Learning. If you try to access the site during this period, you will be notified of the ongoing maintenance and will have to wait a few minutes. The maintenance usually lasts for approx. 10 minutes and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
