I currently pay for a subscription to Lynda.com.  Do I need to continue my subscription?

You do not need to continue paying for your existing subscription.  Our LyndaCampus agreement provides access to all staff, faculty, and students, so there is no need for individuals or groups to purchase separate accounts to use this service.  Individuals and groups across campus that currently pay for an existing account may contact Lynda.com Customer Support if you'd like to close your account and request a prorated refund.

How do I transfer course completion history, playlists, and current course progress from an existing Lynda.com subscription?

Upon first logging in to your new LyndaCampus account, you will be asked if you had a previous account with Lynda.com.  You will be asked to sign into your old account and your information will be transferred to the new account.  Once you've transferred your account info, contact Lynda.com Customer Support to cancel your paid account.

Groups can be created and used to assign courses and track the progress of specific individuals.  This might be useful to managers and directors that want to help build the skills of their staff.  Perhaps a faculty member would like to assign Lynda videos or courses to their students as part of their coursework for the semester; groups make this possible.  Groups are maintained by the individual that requests the group.  Complete the form linked on the right sidebar of this page to request a group.
