Lynda.com Improvements To Come Soon

We’re looking for volunteers to test some new Lynda functionality that was released in beta on October 23. If you are interested, contact me at pstefanuca@mica.edu.

If you participate, you can explore and test a new interface on Lynda.com where you will be able to build playlists comprised of individual videos, or sections of courses.

Specifically, you will be able to:

  • Add courses or individual videos to a playlist
  • Drag and drop courses, videos, chapters, and more into a playlist
  • Enable or disable videos or chapters within a course in a playlist
  • Watch a playlist from start to finish on a single page

In the beta environment, you can switch back to the current playlist functionality by clicking Use classic layout at the upper right of your playlist page.

Just in case you forgot…

What is Lynda? Lynda is an online video library that MICA subscribes to where you can access thousands of instructional video tutorials.

How do I access Lynda? Go to your MICA portal at http://www.mica.edu and log in. On the left menu, click on Academic Resources where you will find a link to Lynda!
