Join Aaron Quigley for an in-depth discussion in this video Lynda.com and learning management systems, part of Teaching with Lynda.com.
- [Voiceover] In the next few videos, we're going to talk about integrating Lynda.com content with the learning management system. Now, there's a lot of different ways the content can be integrated with the learning management system, and for this course, we're going to focus on the most basic ways to integrate content, which is often just linking to the content on the Lynda.com website. However, I'd like to point out that we do have deeper levels of integration, but most of this needs to be set up by a system administrator. If you navigate to lynda.com/integration, you can find more information about these deeper levels of integration.
A few things I'd like to point out. First off is that Lynda.com is an AICC compliant program, meaning that if you're using SCORM or xAPI, you can still track that information of Lynda.com videos if it's properly integrated. We also have a BlackBoard building block, so it's very easy to pull Lynda.com content into the BlackBoard learning management system. If we take a look further down the page, we can also see that there is much more complex ways that we can integrate Lynda.com with our LMS, such as using the API. If a university uses one of these authentication methods, such as single sign-on, then you can also create a seamless experience where students can access Lynda.com courses without having to re-enter a password.
The last thing I'd like to point out is at the very bottom of the page, where we have a list of successful integrations. If you're using one of these learning management systems and you don't have a deeper level of integration, then be sure to use the material we're about to present to you to get started using Lynda.com right away, but also reach out to your system administrator and ask about creating a deeper level of integration with Lynda.com.
