Welcome to Lynda!  Through the collaboration of VCU Technology Services and VCU ALT Lab, lynda.com is available for use by VCU faculty, staff, and students!

Lynda is a leading online learning company that has thousands of tutorials aimed at teaching business, software, technology and creative skills to allow its members to achieve personal and professional goals. Lynda's robust and vast library is able to meet the varied needs of the VCU community.  

  • Faculty can utilize Lynda's vast library of course material to supplement their online and classroom instruction.
  • Staff can find resources that promote professional development, as well as tutorials that provide information on everyday workplace issues.
  • Students can use Lynda for learning, career development, and so much more.

Lynda will run in conjunction with our other online training service, Atomic Learning, until the retirement of Atomic Learning in December 2017.  After this point, Lynda will be the sole online training service at VCU.

Wow! So many Google tutorials! [...] Google Groups has a lot of features we don't use. Watching the tutorial explained so many overlooked features of Groups. Thanks for making this available!
