LyndaCampus Coming Soon

lynda.comThe Office of Information Technology is pleased to announce the expansion of our online training solution.  We will no longer require a checkout license for training as we have purchased  lyndaCampus. lyndaCampus provides academic institutions with unlimited, organization-wide access to the entire library of instructional videos. With  over 2,000 self-paced training classes, practice files and environments, the SMU community will have the ability to access topics including: 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.  Additional benefits include:

We are finalizing the subscription setup to allow the SMU community to use their SMU account and password to access the tutorials.  We will make the service available during the month of September and notify campus as soon as it is ready.
