Before you access

When you first use you will be asked to create an individual profile. This profile “allows you to track your movie viewing history and enjoy other features designed to help you organize and customize your training.”

When you access from off-campus you must still access Lynda via the RMIT website and login with your RMIT login, so that you will be recognised as eligible to use the RMIT subscription. You will then do the secondary login to your profile when you land on the entry page.

Using the app for iPhone / iPad

Lynda support staff have advised that the app is not compatible with the RMIT proxy system. This means the app will not work off-campus. However, students should be able to access the Lynda mobile site through the Safari browser.
