Lynda.com is a subscription website that gives users access to high quality, informative tutorials about everything from email to XHTML and all that's in between.
For example, users can:
- view a video that gives them iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad training
- be taken step by step through Microsoft Office 2010
- preview all of the features available on the Windows 7 platform
- learn the latest about social media tools including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, WordPress to name just a few
Penn's Biomedical Library has a subscription to Lynda.com. Penn students, faculty and staff can only access BioMed's Lynda account from a computer inside the Biomedical Library. Please inquire at the circulation desk. You can bring your own headphones or check out a pair at the circulation desk with your Penn Card.
You may wish to subscribe to Lynda.com on your own for only $25 per month--less than any computer book you can buy. You may cancel at the end of one month if you want. Having your own subscription allows you to watch Lynda's entire library of training videos anywhere you have an internet connection.
