Recently, Lynda.com was bought out by LinkedIn Learning, a Microsoft platform.
During the transition, LinkedIn will require all users to create a LinkedIn social media profile, which will be publicly searchable on the web.
We have never required patrons to sign up for a publicly searchable social media account to use a library resource and believe this undermines our commitment to preserving your privacy as you access information through the library.
We will be pulling all links to Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning from our website in December and are looking for alternatives to give you access to the same type of content. Here are some options for you to try out. We welcome your feedback.
- DigitalLearn.org – Watch short tutorials on computer basics for beginners.
- GCFLearnFree.org – Learn about computer basics, social media, Microsoft Office and more.
- TechBoomers – These short tutorials about online shopping, entertainment, research, business and social media are suitable for anyone new to technology or seeking introductions.
