A full rundown of the types of training offered is included, from in-depth essential training on specific software packages, to first looks at up-and-coming technology trends, to inspirational documentaries following creative professionals working in a variety of disciplines. Garrick also shows how to use special library features such as bookmarks, the queue, certificates of completion, frequently asked questions (FAQs), and more, as well as where to turn for help when you need it. Plus, learn to access lynda.com on the go, either through our mobile site, or the iOS app, which also supports playing videos on your TV via AirPlay and an Apple TV.
By default, our system automatically logs you out of your lynda.com session after four hours of inactivity. If you're finding it inconvenient to have to log in again when you return to lynda.com, be sure to check stay logged in the next time you login. With that option checked, you'll remain continuously logged in when you use that computer and browser again to access lynda.com. Although, be aware that if you don't access your account for two weeks you will have to log in manually with your username and password again. Also bear in mind that this feature is browser dependent, so if you access lynda.com from two different computers or two different browsers on the same computer, you will still have to log in again.
We also recommend against checking stay logged in if you share your computer with others or if you're accessing your account from a public computer due to the risk of someone else accessing your account information. After accessing lynda.com from a public computer, or a computer that's not your own, be sure to click the log out link.
