Note that: your account must to have access to the course in order for the downloader to work, so make sure you have a premium linkedin account, a linkedin learning subscription or a linkedin learning organization account (ex:Libraries).

Thanks for the share. Please how do I use this on my PC? I’m totally a newbie when it comes to downloading and running software from Github. I will appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction to follow. Thanks again!

I am always getting this error. I am using Firefox and followed the instruction and still giving that problem. Is there another way?

@Faith_Works If you have a premium linkedin account, a linkedin learning subscription or a linkedin learning account provided by an organization (ex:Libraries), you can follow these instructions :

  1. Download and run LinkedinLearningCoursesDownloader-v1.1-WindowsSetup.exe
  2. Login in to your linkedin learning account
  3. Choose the browser where you have linkedin learning logged in
  4. Click on Extract Token
  5. Fill in the other fields and start downloading

@taki021 This error means you probably don’t have access to the course. Do you have a premium linkedin account, a linkedin learning subscription or a linkedin learning account provided by an organization (ex:Libraries)?

I don’t have those. I thought having access to the LinkedIn Learning with a normal account (with my LinkedIn account) would work. :frowning:
