For Students, Staff & Faculty: Lynda Online Learning Trial Ends March 30

Don’t miss the chance to try out this highly-acclaimed web-based instruction, courtesy of the LIS education and training team.  Learn new software and device skills easily and enjoyably by watching 2-3 minute videos or opt to work through entire courses.  Choose from video segments covering such varied topics as:  desktop publishing, computer literacy, video editing, personal finance and protecting your privacy online.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Be sure you are using a computer connected to the college’s network.
  2. Type go/trylynda in your web browser’s address field.
  3. Create a personal profile as directed in the right-hand panel to set up a username and password to use during our free trial.  (Important note:  You cannot simply log in with your Middlebury credentials.)  On future visits to the site enter the username and password you created in the left-hand panel to log in; your course history and bookmarking will be retained.
  4. Using any of the four drop-down menus, the “search” feature, or the list of course titles, select a tutorial or course of interest.
  5. Click on any video segment and the tutorial should start in a popup window.
