Certificates of completion make it easier than ever to share your success and progress at lynda.com with your coworkers, friends and employers. As you work your way through a training course, an eye icon automatically appears next to each video you've watched, making it easy to keep track of your progress. And these icons remain associated with your account no matter how many times you've logged in and out, so you can always come back and find your place right away. And with each course you finish, a new certificate of completion will appear in your account. Just go to My Courses, and click Certificates of Completion to see a list of your completed titles.
Certificates of completion are a great way to let your friends, co-workers, and current and potential employers see the value and diversity of your skills. You have several ways of displaying and sharing your certificates. Click View Print to see your certificate. Then click Save As PDF to save it in the Adobe PDF format. You can then open and print the PDF file on your printer. Another option is to email your certificate of completion. Click Share. And in the window that opens, click the Email Tab. Enter the email address of the person to whom you'd like to send your certificate.
If you would like to send your certificate to multiple recipients separate their addresses with a comma. You can type a short message in the message field, if you like. And when you're happy with the email, just click send. Now if you have your own website or blog, you can also link to or embed your certificate of completion into a web page. Click the link tab. And to create a link to your certificate of completion, copy the address under the link to this certificate. Or if you want to provide a link to a page displaying all of your certificates, copy the URL under link to all certificates. Then paste that address into your webpage as a link.
For example open up a new tab here and just paste that address I copied. And this is what the page looks like to the people with whom you've shared this address. If you have accounts with Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, you can click any of their icons here to log into your account and share your certificate. And you can repeat this process for each of your certificates of completion. Just click View, Print or Share next to any of the certificates. If you'd like to see how close you are to completing other courses you've been watching, check your progress on the course history page, either by clicking this link or clicking the Course History tab.
And here you can see the progress bar next to each course as well as a column telling you how much time remains to be watched in each course. Click the column headers if you would like to sort your courses by progress or remaining time. So keep watching videos at lynda.com and start earning those certificates of completion.
