Following the success of the CSC's two-year pilot program with Lynda.com training, the university has entered a license agreement with lynda.com to help provide just-in-time training for keeping up with technolgies as needed to all current staff, faculty and students. As long as you have an account in lynda.com, you will be able to log in anytime, anywhere and learn any topic you like through their many videos. For more information, please visit the Library web page.
As these online courses are broken into bite-size tutorials (each 5-15 minutes long), users can select whichever topic they wish to learn instead of taking the entire course. Lynda.com also provides closed captioning (subtitles) and searchable, time-coded transcripts which make it easy for learners to follow through the content of the entire video.
Current CityU students, faculty and staff
Lynda.com allows the Computing Services Centre (CSC) to offer a training alternative to instructor-led classroom training for staff and students:
To access your CityU lynda.com account, click the above link and log in using your CityU EID (e.g. chanwg10) and Active Directory (AD) password, just like you are logging into the staff or student LAN. If you experience any access issues, please contact the Help Desk (for staff), Service Counter (for students) or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a supplement to our existing Student Computer Literacy and Staff Computer Courses, below are some suggested computer course titles for your viewing. Clicking on the course link will take you to the course page where you will find that only a few movie links in the table of contents are active. If you're logged in as a member, all links will be active. Simply click a movie name in the table of contents and the video will begin playing.
