The NNYLN has purchased a subscription from lynda.com to provide online technical training to library staff in the region.
lynda.com offers over 1,300 online classes, including online training for software from Microsoft, Adobe, Corel, Photoshop, InDesign, Apple, Autodesk, Blackboard, and Joomla, and well as many open source packages such as Drupal.
Other available topics include presentations, social media, business skills, and many others. To see a complete list, visit lynda.com
Staff members may register online through the NNYLN to receive an activation code from lynda.com via email.
Users will be asked to indicate whether they wish to have an active account for two weeks or one month. During that time-frame, users may view as many training videos as they wish on as many topics as desired.
There is also a mobile app that users may download and use; information concerning the mobile app is available on the lynda.com site.
The NNYLN has a limited number of activation codes, so registration will be rotated on a first-come, first-served basis.
