Lynda.com access information
Lynda.com is an online training library focused on business and information technology skills and software. The courses are in a streaming video format. Videos use screenshots, narration, live action, smart boards, charts and graphics, audio and include captioning.
Unlike the basic how-to videos, Lynda.com offers quality, in-depth courses made by experts in the following areas:
- 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. Courses are presented in small chunks, so it’s easy to find quick answers to specific questions.
Lynda.com was acquired by LinkedIn in 2015 - the LinkedIn version of the platform is called LinkedIn Learning. RMIT does not have access to LinkedIn Learning - the course content is the same but the LinkedIn platform offers different features.
Your Lynda.com profile
Lynda.com will create your profile the first time you log. Having a profile lets you manage your courses, access playlists, bookmarks, recommendations and certificates of completion.
You can integrate your Lynda.com course completion certificates with your LinkedIn account, to enhance your professional profile.
