Like all the other library databases, Lynda.com 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 Lynda.com website, always click on the Lynda.com 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.
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 Lynda.com site may have timed out. Get logged back in to Lynda.com by clicking on the link again at the Library A-Z database page, or from inside your instructor’s elearn course link to Lynda.com
