What would you like to learn today?
With the fast pace of change in the technology and tools that we use in our work, providing access to high-quality, web-based, on-demand training has never been more important. I am pleased to let you know about a new online training resource that is being provided, without charge, to Harvard staff by the Harvard Center for Workplace Development: lyndaCampus at Harvard.
lyndaCampus provides unlimited access to the lynda.com library of video tutorials on topics that are specifically keyed to important skills and technology. These include: Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint and SharePoint; Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Dreamweaver; Drupal, CSS and SQL; Access and Filemaker; AutoCAD; programming languages, and much more, including web tools like Dropbox and WebEx.
The library contains more than computer training. It includes business classes such as time management, project management, social media marketing, and terrific programs on topics of personal interest like photography, design, mobile apps and creative inspirations.
lynda.com has over 2,000 courses taught by expert instructors, with new content added weekly. Each course is broken into short modules and has searchable transcripts so you can watch them in their entirety or jump directly to the parts you need. Individual playlists help you keep track of what you would like to learn and share videos with other users.
To access this resource, you will need to set up your account from a Harvard networked computer by going to the lyndaCampus registration page. Once you have followed the instructions there to establish your account, you can log onto lynda.com anywhere you have an internet connection — at work, at home, or from a smartphone or mobile device and have full access to the course library.
I hope you will take advantage of this valuable online learning and career resource. If you have any questions, please refer to the Harvard lyndaCampus portal or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
