University launches online training program
What do you want to learn today? All students, faculty, and staff now have access to lynda.com, an online subscription library that teaches the latest software, business, and creative skills through high-quality instructional videos.
- Students can learn techniques that will help boost class projects and resumes.
- Faculty can create playlists and incorporate them into syllabi to help with students’ course work.
- Staff can enhance leadership and business skills and explore new technologies.
As a member of the University of Maryland community, you can visit www.lyndatraining.umd.edu and log in with your Directory ID and password to access more than 2,300 training videos on a broad range of subjects, including career development and business skills, design, music and video, and Web tools. New courses are added often.
Access the videos 24/7—even from your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or mobile phone—and watch entire courses or single video tutorials as you need them.
The new lynda.com training service is offered through a partnership of the Division of Information Technology, University Human Resources, and the University Libraries.

If you already have a lynda.com account and would like to transfer it to the new system, please visit www.lynda.com/support/contact.aspx to make the request. You will need to log into the new system first, and you will need to provide your old login ID and your U ID Number in order for a representative to make the change.
The new lynda.com service replaces the online training offered to faculty and staff through SkillSoft at www.training.umd.edu. If you have any questions about SkillSoft’s retirement, please contact Cyn Trombly Allen, Assistant Director, Workplace Initiatives in Learning and Development at email@example.com.
