Learn how to find, access, and view courses in the lynda.com training library. Staff author Garrick Chow explains how to find the "need to know" material quickly and browse other subjects you might be interested in. 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.
If you ever run into any difficulties in playing our videos, or if you're experiencing any other problems with our service or with your account, you can start troubleshooting by going to the Support menu, and selecting Frequently Asked Questions. This takes you to our searchable database of common questions and their solutions. You can either type a search term into this field, or choose a category from the Filter By menu to see a list of questions. For example, I might choose Technical Help, which gives me a long list of FAQs. But I can also narrow it down by selecting, say, Movie Playback Issues from the subcategory menu. Which gives me fewer questions to look through and then I can click any question to see the answer.
