ACU is offering a free membership to Lynda.com to all students this semester.
Lynda.com is a website specializing in providing video-based tutorials in subjects such as business management and computer technology. The site boasts more than 80,000 video tutorials and 400 software titles. Lynda.com was created in 1995 by computer instructor, author and businesswoman Lynda Weinman.
ACU students can use their IDs to gain access to the site for free. Annual subscriptions can normally cost up to $375.
Kyle Dickson, director of the Learning Studio, said Lynda.com has video tutorials ready and waiting for a wide variety of needs.
“Lynda.com is the standard for video software training for design and media professionals and now ACU students, faculty and staff have unlimited access to the entire library for free,” said Dickson, associate professor of English.
Dickson said Lynda.com can provide supplemental and specialized support to resources already available on campus.
“We have great resources in the Learning Studio and Team55 for introducing students to a select list of software and skills,” Dickson. “But as students move into specialized work in accounting or web design, Lynda.com allows us to offer expert training in dozens of specialized fields.”
