Q. What is Lynda.com, and how do I log in and use it?
Lynda.com is a huge library of high-quality online video tutorials supporting study skills, digital skills, business skills, employability skills and lots more. It is available for registered students and staff but not for partner institutions.
The tutorials are subtitled and include exercise files. On-screen controls mean you decide the pace of your learning, plus you can view content on any device either via your browser or by downloading the app.
There are several options to login to Lynda.com. You can either:
• Log to Lynda.com via Shibboleth using your NILE username and password.
• Go to www.lynda.com, and click log-in at the top right. Under Organisation Login, please enter www.northampton.ac.uk. This will redirect to you to the University of Northampton portal, and after entering your NILE username and password, you will be redirected to lynda.com where you will be able to access the resources.
• Download the Lynda.com Android app or iOS app. Using the organisation tab enter www.northampton.ac.uk under Web Portal – this will redirect you to the University of Northampton portal where you can log-in using your NILE username and password.
