Wheaton College Lynda.com Subscription

Effective Dates: July 1, 2015 and August 1, 2015

On August 1, 2015, we're expanding Wheaton College's lynda.com subscription as part of our initiative to make this resource available to all students, faculty, and staff. This new subscription allows for broad access and availability for the college community, and will replace Buswell Library's subscription. Those who previously subscribed through the library will have early access starting on July 1.

Key Benefits and Features

  • Lynda.com provides over 3,500 video tutorial courses from industry experts on interpersonal, creative, professional, and technical skills
  • Unlimited access to Lynda.com's complete library of training materials will continue
  • The new subscription does not require weekly renewal; your account will be available at any time

Impact on College Community

If you used Lynda.com through Buswell Library, you will need to transfer your playlists and history to a Wheaton subscription in order to access them after June 30. When you log in for the first time using your Wheaton email address and password, you may need to migrate your information (you may be asked to sign in).

Lynda.com will be accessible to all students, faculty, and staff on August 1.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu or call 630.752.4357 (HELP).
