LinkedIn Learning with Lynda.com Portal

Get Started

Lynda.com is now LinkedIn Learning with Lynda.com content, and Eastman has just upgraded!

The same comprehensive courses are available, but now rebranded and repackaged in an even more inviting manner. All of your course history is still available, and you now have the option of adding your previous lynda.com profile to LinkedIN, but you don’t have to.

Over the next two weeks we will be updating this site to ensure you get the most out of the transition. For now, use the direct link and the instructions on how to sign in, to continue your training. Thank you for your patience and enjoy!

  • For Faculty
  • For Staff

Take Advantage of Blackboard Integration

  • Learn how to integrate courses into your own course.
  • Employ the flipped learning model.
  • Introduce tangential topics students can explore with greater depth at their own pace.

Apps

Mobile and Tablet

Your learning doesn’t have to be limited to your desktop, or the classroom. Take it with you on your phone or tablet.

Desktop and TV

  • Desktop App 
    • If you aren’t feeling a browser, or you plan to be off the grid for a while, it could be great to download the courses you were watching for offline viewing, before your digital trail goes dark.
  • TV Apps
    • What you do in the comfort of your own home is your business, but who said it can’t be educational?
    • Of course, you could use this in a classroom as well…
