Lynda.com has recently updated their site with some new features including updates to their user management interface. For more information please see our updated article here.
CalArts provides a limited number of Lynda.com accounts available for Faculty and Staff use. There are ten total training slots available and each have a minimum term of two weeks. Faculty and staff can request a Lynda.com account (or reactivation of a Lynda.com account) by submitting an IT ticket.
For those who aren't aware, Lynda.com is an online training resource with literally thousands of tutorials available with both video and offline demo content (depending on program). The two week minimum is exactly that: you will have access until for two weeks until someone else requests access, accounts generally last a full month or more before reassignment.
Lynda.com is not available for student use at this time. CalArts IT has investigated the possibility of a campus agreement that would open access to students, faculty, and staff on an unlimited basis but we do not know when, or if, this will ever become a realistic possibility.
