Remote Access to Lynda for students

We’re excited to announce a pilot project. Following up on a idea from the SAS Student Technology Advisory Board in the spring, we contacted Lynda.com and learned about the ability to lend Lynda Pro licenses. After conversations with ISC and the Office of Software Licensing, we have decided to restrict access to undergraduate and graduate students.

We will start lending four licenses this week. You will be able to access Lynda.com from any location on any machine for one day at a time. We will manage the licenses on weekday mornings. You can make your reservation the night before, or up to a week ahead. Since access will be linked to your own Penn email address, you can maintain bookmarks, keep track of half-watched videos and manage completion certificates. When you log back in, you can pick up right where you left off. We plan to run this pilot out through the end of the semester, and we welcome your feedback.
