A service brought to you by CUA Libraries
Welcome to lyndaCampus at CUA
The lynda.com online video training library is an excellent resource offering more than 2,000 self-paced training classes on a wide range of computer and project management skills for beginning, intermediate, and advanced users. Topics offered include: the entire suite of Microsoft and Adobe products, website development, business skills, design skills, audio and video tools, creative inspirations, and much more. All of the courses are taught by expert instructors and have fully searchable transcripts. Thanks to a partnership between CUA Libraries and lynda.com, these classes are now available to all University students, faculty, and staff, through a program called lyndaCampus. A quick overview of this service can be found in the lyndaCampus introductory video.
Through a university-wide site license, lyndaCampus is free to all current CUA students, faculty, and staff. Once your account is set up through the University Libraries, you can log into the lynda.com site 24/7 and take as many of their classes as you want, on any topic you want, wherever you are—at home, on campus, on your mobile device (iOS app is available; Android app coming soon).
To get started, follow the instructions under Sign Up to register for your CUA lyndaCampus account, then go to lynda.com and start learning! If you have any questions, you can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
