Lynda.com access information
Lynda.com is an extensive online training library focussed on business and information technology. The lynda.com library helps anyone learn software, creative, and business skills to achieve personal and professional goals. It covers a wide variety of software products and digital technology. The courses are in streaming video format. Unlike basic how-to videos though, Lynda.com offers quality, in-depth courses made by experts. Subject areas include:
- Business including Office and Google software
- Photography and video
- Web and social media
There are over 1400 courses and 82,000 videos and new material is added every week. Videos use screenshots, narration, live action, smart boards, charts and graphics, audio and include captioning. Courses are presented in small chunks, so it’s easy to find quick answers to specific questions.
Before you access Lynda.com
When you first use Lynda.com you will be asked to create an individual profile. This profile “allows you to track your movie viewing history and enjoy other Lynda.com features designed to help you organize and customize your training.”
Changes in 2016 to the Lynda.com login - a note for returning users
Lynda.com has worked with RMIT to create a single sign on. This means that you will no longer require a separate Lynda.com login; you can use your RMIT log in.
Next time you use Lynda.com you should transfer your existing profile to use your RMIT login. Select the 'I've had an account' button. When you transfer your account your Lynda.com course history and play lists etc will be included.
