Online learning resource Lynda.com available to all

This is a guest post from Mur Muchane, associate vice president for information technology and CIO. It was e-mailed to students, faculty and staff Sept. 19:

Information Systems is pleased to announce that, beginning today, September 19th, all Wake Forest University students, faculty and staff have access to the leading online creative and professional skills provider, Lynda.com.

The over 4,000 self-paced courses, ranging from Adobe Creative Cloud, Excel, SPSS and MATLAB to Mobile App Development, 3D Animation and Presentation Skills, are:

  • organized in modular, easy to use and manage, 5 to 15 minute segments
  • searchable, so you can identify specific topics without watching an entire course (for example, Create Pivot Tables in Excel or Remove Red-Eye in a Photo)
  • downloadable for offline use via mobile apps for iOS, Android, Windows, AppleTV and Roku.

Three different ways to access the entire Lynda.com library:

–Sign into WFU Google Mail with your Wake Forest email address (your_username@nullwfu.edu) and password. Click the App Launcher (box of dots, top right of inbox), scroll down to the bottom, then click on the Lynda icon.

OR
