The IEEE Learning Network (ILN) is the online website for discovering continuing education from across IEEE. With hundreds of educational courses available—and more added all the time—ILN offers the latest in continuing education in engineering, technology, and more. Whether you’re looking to advance your career, refresh your skills, or just curious about the latest trends, ILN has the content you need. Topics covered include 5G, Smart Grid, Renewable Energy, the Internet of Things (IoT), English for Technical Professionals, and more. The IEEE Photonics Society has a number of webinars and self-service courses to participate in.

Plus, ILN offers you the ability to: easily search through IEEE’s hundreds of educational offerings; bookmark a place within a course and return to it later; access a transcript of in-progress and completed courses; Learn what’s new in the world of continuing education at IEEE; receive continuing education units (CEUs) or professional development hours (PDHs); earn digital certificates immediately that can be viewed and printed on demand; complete dynamic assessments to test knowledge of course content;  and participate in surveys/evaluations to provide feedback and recommendations for improvement.

IEEE Member Discounts are available for the courses that have a cost. However, you do not need to be an IEEE member to access ILN. You will need an IEEE Account to take or purchase a course. If you do not already have your own IEEE Account, it’s free and quick to create one.

If you have any questions or issues with the platform. please read the ILN user guides.

Educational Activities (EA) is also now offering digital badges for eLearning course programs on the IEEE Learning Network (ILN) and some qualifying virtual training events. Digital badges contain embedded metadata within the image that reflects the specific skills earned and can be shared online.

Badges are tied to individual bodies of knowledge that can be received after successful completion of a course program or series of events (virtual and/or live). Digital badges will only be awarded to individuals who complete an entire course program through the IEEE Learning Network (ILN).

Course programs that currently offer digital badges: A Step-by-Step Approach to Designing Blockchain Solutions; Artificial Intelligence Standards: Roadmap for Ethical and Responsible Digital Environments; Automotive Cyber Security: Protecting the Vehicular Network; Bridging the 4G/5G Gap: Telecommunications Roadmap for Implementation; Digital Transformation: Moving Toward a Digital Society; IEEE English for Technical Professionals; IEEE Software and Systems Engineering Standards Used in Aerospace and Defense; Machine Learning: Predictive Analysis for Business Decisions; and National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) 2023.

The benefits of Digital Badging provide a modular way of showing levels of competency and represent successful completion of a program with verifiable skills. Learners are enabled with a self-promotion tool for career growth, and it is an easy way to share credentials across social media.

After learners successfully complete an IEEE Learning Network (ILN) eligible course program, they can email requesting the digital badge. IEEE EA will verify the learner’s transcript in ILN and issue the badge via Accredible. These credentials are then portable and can be displayed across most social media platforms, such as LinkedIn.
