Improve Your Tech Skills!

                            LinkedIn Learning is the premier e-learning platform with over 16K courses. MCC students, faculty and staff may access it free of charge by signing up with a college email address. During activation you can even connect your new account to your LinkedIn profile to show off your newly-acquired skills and completed courses.

The Essential Tech Skills Learning Path was created especially for our MCC community and provides short, engaging lessons on using Microsoft 365 and OneDrive, computer care basics, as well as accessing MyCommNet and Blackboard. This learning path will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
