Faculty and staff using Lynda.com to pursue training opportunities can now take advantage of that access for longer periods of time. Information Technology Services has removed the 30-day time limit on the licenses in response to user requests.
As long as there is no waiting list, registered users will continue to have uninterrupted access. When demand exceeds availability, ITS will suspend accounts of users to meet the new demand. Accounts will be suspended based on the length of period the user had access and/or infrequent usage.
Lynda.com is an online repository that has tens of thousands of courses and video tutorials on commercial products such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Cloud and more.
Students are granted access when available, but those licenses are only valid for 14 days to ensure the tool remains available for faculty and staff development and classroom support.
Users must register at lynda.com within 48 hours of getting the e-mail registration notice. Failure to do so will drop the request to a waiting list. Users may apply for access to Lynda as often as they like. Other details about the program are here:http://it.wvu.edu/services/training/lynda
