Watching lynda.com courses on your computer has always been a great way to learn and master the software and digital tools that are most important to you. Now the lynda.com mobile site lets you access our entire library of courses wherever you go. To access the mobile site just open a web browser in your device and point it at m.lynda.com. Our mobile site works on iPhone or iPod touch running IOS 3.2 or later. As well as Android OS2 or later and Blackberry OS5.0 or later, and it works either over Wi-Fi or your cellular provider's network.
If you have an iPad, we recommend that you use the regular www.lynda.com site because the mobile site is optimized for devices with smaller screens. If you're a lynda.com member, click log in on home screen to enter your user name and password. Once logged in, you'll be taken to the home page where you'll see a list of the items you last viewed, the items in your queue, your course history, as well as a list of our latest releases. So for example, if you want to start watching a course you had previously been watching, here on the home page, you can scroll back up to Last Viewed, to find the movies you most recently viewed and pick up where you last left off. You can always return to this page by tapping Home in the navigation bar. The other items in the navigation bar allow you to browse our library by subject, software and author.
But, unlike our full site, these buttons don't open drop down menus. Instead you'll be taken to a page where you can browse these categories alphabetically. So for example, if you wanted to find some training on photography, you would tap subject, then P, and then Photography, to see all the photography related courses. When you find a course you'd like to watch, tap its name to open its Course Details page. Here, you can tap to read the course description and then browse through the Table of Contents.
Use the triangles next to each chapter's name to collapse and expand that chapter. Or tap expand all, or collapse all, which can make it easier to browse the contents of longer courses. If you want to remind yourself to return to this course at a later time, tap the add to queue button to add it to your queue. You can get to your queue at any time by tapping your account name at the top of the screen, and then tapping queue. Another way to find specific information is to use the search bar at the top of each page of the mobile site.
Tap in the field, type your search terms and then tap search. In a few moments you'll see a list of courses matching your search. You can use this menu to sort your results by relevance, course name, learning level, duration or release date. Tapping a course takes you directly to that courses details page. You can also see your search results by movie by tapping on the movie tab, tapping a movie plays that movie right away.
>> So, in the last movie we looked at how you can use CSS3 transitions to do nice animations as CSS properties are actually. >> At the bottom of every page of the mobile site is the footer area where you'll find links to other information or parts of the site you might want to visit such as our About page, the Site Map, or the Subscribe page if you're not currently a member and would like to sign up. Also in the footer area is the link to the full site.
Which takes you to the non mobile version of Lynda.com so you could browse our website in the format and layout you see in your desktop web browser. Although be aware that certain elements of the full site might not function depending on the device or browser you're using. And because of the smaller screen of your device, you'll most likely have to zoom in to navigate the site as well. To return to the mobile version of the site, just type in the address m.lynda.com again, or use the back button within your browser. The mobile site has been optimized for easy navigation on your devices screen. So if you're familiar with our full site, you shouldn't have any trouble finding what you're looking for, but you will find some key differences between the mobile and full versions of our site. For example our mobile site does not currently support features such as bookmarks or closed captioning.
To access these features switch to the full version of the site. We hope you enjoy having access to the entire lynda.com library of courses from your mobile device.
