An online training service available free to all faculty, staff and students will be highlighted this week at information booths across campus.

“lynda.com is a phenomenal resource to help people learn new skills and brush up on changing technology and software applications,” says Keith McWhirter, Associate Director, ITS. “If you’ve been wondering what lynda.com is all about, I encourage you to drop by one of the booths this week to take it for a test drive and see what it has to offer.”

With thousands of instructional videos available on the latest software and technology as well as business and creativity skills, lynda.com offers a world of valuable training opportunities. Queen’s staff will be on hand at the information booths to help to sign up and to answer any questions.

Look for lynda.com booths in the following locations between 11 am and 2 pm and pick up some free lynda.com swag:

Tuesday, Nov. 17 Stauffer Library, Room 121
Wednesday, Nov. 18 Goodes Hall
Thursday,  Nov. 19  Beamish Munro Hall (Atrium)
Friday, Nov. 20 McArthur Hall, West Campus (Student Street)

Faculty, staff and students can sign up for the lynda.com with their Queen’s NetID at lynda.queensu.ca and begin browsing the wide range of training videos available. Topics include software programs, presentation skills, social media and photography. Topics are broken down into short lessons so you can either watch a full hour-long tutorial on Excel, for example, or simply select the three-minute lesson that can help you create the perfect pie chart.

The availability of lynda.com at Queen’s is made possible by a pilot project sponsored by ITS, Human Resources, Queen’s Library, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, and Smith School of Business. Log in to Lynda.com now.
