(Emerging Service) Lynda

A Service of Campus IT Partners

Lynda.com logo

Lynda.com offers online, video-based training on thousands of topics, including office software, data analysis, business, design, communication, programming, marketing and many more. 

The training ranges from beginner to advanced, and Lynda provides "Learning Paths" to guide learners through a series of courses to go from absolute beginner to expert.

After a successful pilot in early 2017 with ~10 campus departments, we proceeded to procure a license for Lynda that currently covers 3,400 UC Davis staff members, spanning more than 50 administrative and academic units and including titles as diverse as Fundraising Managers, Administrative Assistants, Environmental Health & Safety Specialists, Animal Technicians, Application Developers, Librarians, and Business/Technical Support Analysts.

Departments that are interested in making Lynda available to their employees can contact lynda@ucdavis.edu to discuss options for joining this service.
