The first time you access LinkedIn Learning:

  1. Go to Databases link on the library site.
  2. LinkedIn Learning is listed alphabetically.
    • Bookmark the library’s link: https://lib.pstcc.edu/lynda
  3. Enter your PSCC email address when prompted (other email addresses will be rejected).
  4. Enter your PSCC email and password if prompted again, to verify that you are a current student or employee.
  5. Every time you return to the login screen, login with your PSCC email address to see your progress in the courses and continue working.

Access over 53,000 video tutorials instantly on: digital photography, web design, web development, audio, motion graphics, Adobe, Photoshop, Microsoft Office, Illustrator, Apple, Creative Inspirations, Avid, 3D Graphics, Dreamweaver, Action script, Final Cut Pro, and many more.

At the LinkedIn Learning homepage, make your selection from the various drop down menus at top and start viewing your streaming course videos and downloading the accompanying exercise files.

Like all the other library databases, LinkedIn Learning can be accessed from on or off-campus.  When off-campus, clicking on the Lynda.com link at the A-Z library databases, will prompt you to log in with your Pellissippi username and password.

To ensure access to the website, always click on the LinkedIn Learning link from the Library’s A-Z database.  This will ensure that Lynda.com will recognize you as an authorized Pellissippi State user.  Instructors may provide access to Lynda.com from inside a PSCC elearn course for their students.

Known issues:

As this is a very comprehensive site with many options and videos,  certain issues may occur.

Some browsers may experience difficulties logging in. If unable to login, users may want to try a different browser.

There is a time out issue: once logged in and a course has been selected, and videos played, but then the user takes a break.  When returning from a break, access to the site may have timed out.  Get logged back in by clicking on the link again at the Library A-Z database page, or from inside your instructor’s elearn course link.

 

More Help for logging into Lynda.com from Pellissippi State is available from the library.
