No. Learning on Lynda.com is unlimited. As long as your username and password (provided by the HelpDesk) are valid, you may access any of the Lynda.com tutorials. Feel free to learn multiple topics concurrently.
The length of validity for your username and password depends upon the course of study you've chosen when requesting access via the HelpDesk. Naturally, larger topics will require longer periods of access. We also understand that sometimes you get distracted and will need to request an extension. If this is the case - or if you are having trouble logging in, contact the HelpDesk at 410-778-7777.
By default, Lynda.com is accessible for three days per access request. At times, we may not be able to process requests for extensions due to high training demand.
No. OIT has purchased the required multi-user account to provide free access to the Washington College community. There is no cost to your or your department for taking advantage of the video training provided by Lynda.com.
You can be anywhere and still have access to Lynda.com's resources - even at home! While we are more than happy to offer you help from friendly consultants in places like the MPC or the computing facilities, you are more than welcome to use Lynda.com anywhere you see fit.
"Lynda" refers to Lynda Weinman, the co-founder of Lynda.com. The woman in the icon is Lynda Weinman, who does look just like that.
