The story so far…

Since its rollout across the university in June 2016, over 10,000 staff and students have signed up and are using Lynda.com to improve their IT, business, digital and creative skills. With access to over 250,000 high quality videos and 6,000 courses delivered by industry experts, the service allows you to learn what you want, when you want.

Service promotion 2018

Now that we’ve reached this milestone, there are no plans to slow down in 2018. We’ll be kicking the year off with the launch of our brand new newsletter highlighting key courses and videos, discussing staff and student experiences with Lynda.com, useful tips and tricks, and lots more. We’re also bringing Lynda.com to our staff and students by visiting key locations across the university to promote the service. If you see us out and about, come say hi and grab yourself some free merchandise. As well as all of this, we’re also offering classroom-based training sessions and self-paced learning sessions where you can take time away from your desk to learn with Lynda.com in our Argyle House training rooms.
