Access My LINC on Mobile Devices

Tags mylinc




I would like to access and complete My LINC courses via a mobile device.


There is no approved mobile version of My LINC. When you are trying to access My LINC via a mobile device, you will be directed to download the SumTotal Mobile app, which is not used at U-M. It is best if My LINC is accessed using a computer.

Desktop Mode for Mobile Devices

If a computer is not available, there is a work-around, however, note that the website and courseware will not be formatted correctly.

You can select to view the My LINC website in "desktop mode," which will allow you to access My LINC and the courseware as though you are on a computer;

  1. Open Google Chrome on your mobile device
  2. Go to
    1. You will likely see a page about downloading the SumTotal app, please ignore this page
  3. Select the 3 horizontal dots for the Google Chrome browser (usually on the top or bottom right side)
  4. Scroll through the options
  5. Select Desktop site (might say Request Desktop Site or other similar wording)

The courseware will open within a new tab in the Google Chrome app.
