Are we able to log in to Lynda.com on our personal computers?
Good question! You have to use it in the library at one of the dedicated terminals in the tech lab on the second floor of the library.
I would love to explore the possibility of using some of this content for my web design course next spring. However, with probably 24 students in the course, I wonder if having 2 terminals where students could access it would be enough.
Are there any plans to expand availability outside of the TechLab?
Good and timely question. We have gotten a lot of feedback about this and are working out some details to help make access to this service easier. Be on the lookout for an announcement about changes to our lynda.com subscription soon.
