Lynda.com Training

Need a quick tip about how to do something in a software program?  With online resource lynda.davidson.edu students, faculty, and staff have access to the entire Lynda.com library consisting of a comprehensive collection of online instruction for major software applications and topics in digital media. The detailed video-based tutorials are broken down into easy-to-manage five to 15 minute segments allowing users to come back multiple times and pick up at the point at which they left off.

We believe you will find Lynda.com beneficial for your professional and personal development as well as supplemental instruction for students using software applications in courses. For example, students new to Excel in Economics courses can get up to speed on their own without taking additional classroom time. Students wanting to dig deeper in multimedia applications used in Flim and Media Studies and other academic areas will also find a rich set of resources. You may want to take a minute to review a case study in the use of Lynda.com for art courses at Whitman College (PDF) as well as case studies at Duke University.

We invite you to go to lynda.davidson.edu and browse the library of courses by subject, software, vendor, or author. You will be prompted to create a personal profile/account. We ask that you use your davidson.edu email address.
