Information Technology is pleased to announce a partnership with the online training company, lynda.com, to provide the entire campus community with full access to its Online Training Library®. The lynda.com Online Training Library® offers 24 hour access to over 98,000 training videos in over 1900 courses on hundreds of software and design topics. Topics include a broad range of technologies: digital photography, editing media files, productivity software, social networking tools like Facebook and Twitter, even the iPad. Short videos – a couple minutes each – are posted within "courses" on the site. Simply search for your topic, find your video, get the answer you need, and get back to your work quickly.
This access went live on Friday, July 1, 2011 and allows all members of the Valpo community to have premium access to the full catalog of courses available on lynda.com. Individuals who had previously used lynda.com during the trial period will be able to use the same login they had created at that time. To login, use the links available on this website.
The benefits to the Valpo community through use of lynda.com are enormous.
