Reading documentation is useful, to be sure, but often what we need to learn right now is better served through other media. For example, if you're new to Blackboard Learn as a faculty member, imagine having access to an organized collection of short videos that cover every aspect of Blackboard for beginners, structured so that you can pick exactly what you need when you need it. That might be a far better solution than a mountain of text.

That collection is available right right here and right now through Lynda.com, thanks to a campus licensing agreement from NAU's Information Technology Services' Learning and Professional Development team.

Lynda provides access to extensive resources in high-quality instructional videos taught by industry experts in dozens of subject areas, including areas like word processing, web design, software development, photography, music composition, project management, social media, and animation. If you have a particular program you need to learn, you can find courses specifically for software like Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft SharePoint, Quickbooks, or GarageBand.

Jump over to Lynda and survey what's on offer. It just might be what you need right when you need it.
