LinkedIn is continually seeking ways to better integrate LinkedIn technology with education sites. Highlight what your alumni are up to now and showcase the diversity of their career paths to your current and prospective students. Embed this university/college widget into your existing sites.
Additionally, here’s an example of the Alumni widget in action on a Colgate site: http://www.colgate.edu/distinctly-colgate/success-after-colgate. You can even link to your school’s ‘notable alumni‘.
Other LinkedIn plugins are listed here: https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. And they have a page dedicated to Higher Ed Professionals with all kinds of resources.
