SFU Library is pleased to announce an expanded subscription for 2013 to lynda.com with an unlimited number of users. (Our past subscription was for 6 simultaneous users, which was frequently exceeded.)
If you are unfamiliar with lynda.com, here is a brief description:
“Thousands of video tutorials from expert authors on software, design, and business skills. It covers hundreds of topics, including Photoshop, Microsoft Office, Flash, Final Cut Pro, presentation skills, print and web design, programming, design principles, digital photography and video, animation, and much more.”
You can access lynda.com here: http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CRDB/BVAS/resource/10456
Note: New users will need to create a profile the first time they use lynda.com. After that, you will be able to create your own playlists and organize courses.
This is a one year pilot project as there is no ongoing funding to sustain this subscription after January 14, 2014. Over the course of this year, we will be gathering data and feedback on lynda.com to help determine whether this is a resource of use to departments and units across SFU.
If you have any feedback on lynda.com, please send it to email@example.com – thanks!
