Good news! Lynda.com, an online education resource with thousands of video courses on everything from Adobe Photoshop to customer service, is again available for WOU faculty and staff.
However, Lynda.com’s significant price increase required us to scale back the number of people who can use this resource at one time. Three employees can now use Lynda.com concurrently for an entire term.
Due to the limited availability of this training, access is granted based on specific needs, usually related to work-related projects requiring in-depth learning. For example, someone wanting to learn how to use Adobe InDesign to create a textbook for independent publishing, or someone wanting to learn GarageBand to a create a podcast related to their academic work, would be the kinds of requests that would receive favorable consideration.
Spots are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Each session begins the first day of the term and ends the first day of the next term. For summer, since we are starting over, access can be granted immediately.
If you’re interested in taking advantage of this incredible resource, please email me at carters@wou with a brief description of your training need.
P.S. In addition, faculty and staff can also make arrangements with the DMC for short-term use of Lynda.com that must be used within the DMC, usually by booking one of the two digital production rooms (HL 221 or HL 222). DMC staff can log you into Lynda.com, giving you access to the entire training library for your session.
