at Middlebury College

Lynda is a fabulous video-based online instruction resource that is available to all academic year faculty, staff, and students, both here and at Monterey.  You can learn new software skills to help at work or home by watching short, 2 to 3-minute movies or by working through an entire course.

Here's how to get started:

  1. Type http://go/lynda/ (or from off campus) in your browser’s address field, then press Enter or Return.
  2. From Middlebury’s authentication page, log in with your Middlebury email address and password.
  3. The first time you log in, click No, I've never had an account
  4. You will then be asked to provide basic information for your Lynda profile.  Fill in your first and last name. The profile is used to store your personal video viewing history, bookmarks, certificates of completion, etc.
  5. Click Save to save your profile information; you will be re-directed to the Lynda site where you can begin your learning adventure.
  6. Use the “search” field at the top of the window to find videos or courses of interest, or hover the mouse pointer over LIBRARY to access course groupings by topic, software title, learning paths and more.
  7. Work through topics of interest in the short course called “How to use” to learn basic navigation and details about course offerings.
