The goal of UGA online training programs is to help provide faculty, staff and students with access to essential training material in a timely and convenient manner. Enterprise ­Information Technology Services currently offers online training with lynda.com and Microsoft Imagine Academy, which formerly was called the Microsoft IT Academy.

Lynda.com, which is part of LinkedIn, offers high-quality videos in design, technology, business skills, education, web development, photography and more. Popular courses include those about InDesign, Excel, HTML, Final Cut Pro and WordPress. Lynda.com offers videos for all skill levels that can be viewed a few minutes at a time or longer.

Lynda.com allows users to create playlists to share with colleagues, friends or students. Lynda.com has thousands of courses segmented by topic for people who want to view specific tutorials in a course.

Instructors can use lynda.com videos to supplement course materials by selecting ­specific courses or tutorials. Students can get a head start on their careers by learning about additional skills through lynda.com courses.

UGA faculty, staff and students have ­unlimited, free access to lynda.com. It is available via the MyUGA Portal at my.uga.edu.
