The Office of Information Technology at Princeton has recently purchased a site license for lynda.com, an award-winning, online software-training site. The lynda.com training library contains over 1,000 titles featuring a wide variety of software packages, such as Adobe and Microsoft Office products, video- and audio-editing software, web development applications, scripting, and 3D design packages.
The URL for Princeton’s web portal to lynda.com is:
Anyone with a valid Princeton netid has access to this portal.
Princeton has a premium subscription to the service, which includes exercise files–the same files the instructor uses in the class-so that it’s possible to follow the examples given in the course videos. Most courses also have a transcript that can be searched to find the exact topic of interest within the course; courses with transcripts also have closed-captioning.
There is an OIT Knowledge Base article on lynda.com, with more exact instructions of how to use the site, and support and troubleshooting information for the Princeton campus community.
Lynda.com has its own FAQ page, and there is a Princeton-specific FAQ for lynda.com here.
Please direct any feedback about Princeton’s membership to lynda.com to firstname.lastname@example.org.
