How to Use Lynda.com - Quick tips for getting the most from your on-demand learning resource
Access the lynda.com library 24/7 from desktops, laptops, smartphones, or tablets. Use the lynda.com app for iPhone, iPad, or Android or log in via the lynda.com mobile site. Watch entire courses or single tutorial videos as needed, share course playlists, bookmark courses you’d like to watch, or use exercise files to follow along with the instruction as you learn, and much more. New courses are added every week. Access your account by clicking on the link below, or going to lynda.skidmore.edu.
PLEASE NOTE: The first time you login, you will be asked if you have had a lynda.com account before. If you have, and there is course information/history you want to import into this new account, select "I've had an account". If this is your first time using lynda.com, or you want to start fresh with this account, select "No, I've never had an account". In most cases, you will chose the second option. However, if you do select the "I've had an account" option, a window will pop up asking you to enter your previous username and password, and it will then transfer the information into your new account - just like magic! ALSO IMPORTANT: If you have been using the account Skid1 - Skid10, do not import that user account into your new one. Start fresh.
