Lynda.com Kiosk Now Open for Business
The Library’s Digital Learning Lab has recently purchased a subscription to Lynda.com – an video-based online training resource that offers self-paced instruction for all sorts of business, creative and technology related needs. From learning video editing to brushing up on Blackboard skills, learning how to create a Prezi presentation to fine-tuning your Excel knowledge,Lynda.com offers more than 4,000 courses that can help students, faculty and staff become more comfortable with a variety of tools. To explore everything you can learn, go to www.lynda.com and click on “Library”.
We purchased a kiosk subscription which means that we have one dedicated computer in the Lab that is available from 8 – 5 pm Monday-Friday for anyone who wants to use it without a specific login. (If you want to make sure the kiosk is available when you want it, you might want to make an appointment by calling (804)278-4324.) Although the ideal way to spread the word about Lynda.com is to provide a campus-wide subscription, we’re trying this approach first.
We’ll have a Lynda.com Open House in the Lab from 1 pm – 5 pm every day next week (April 18 – 22), as well as between 10 am – noon on Tuesday and Wednesday (April 19 – 20). Come by and let us show you how Lynda.com can help you.
