Introducing Lynda.com ... Again!
You may recall that CIT offered a campus-wide subscription to Lynda.com, an online training library that teaches the latest software, creative, and business skills through high-quality instructional videos taught by recognized industry experts. It's back! What would normally cost $25 per month for a private license is free for Oberlin College students, faculty, and staff and allows access to all of the video courses on the site.
How do I begin using Lynda.com?
Visit lynda.com/email-signup and enter your Oberlin email address. Lynda.com will then send you an email containing a link that you'll need to click to verify. From there, you're in!

To learn to use these features, watch creating and managing your playlists and sharing your playlists from lynda.com.
When an individual has viewed all the movies in a lynda.com course, they can earn a certificate of completion for that course.
