All SCAD staff, faculty and students have full access to Lynda.com through MySCAD. The link to access Lynda.com can be found on the Workspace Tab under in the My IM&T channel. You can create playlists in Lynda.com for trainings that you would like to view. You can also share these playlists with others so they can follow the same learning path.
To create a playlist, click on the Lynda.com link in MySCAD.
Once you are logged into Lynda, click on My Courses and select the playlists section.
Then click the Create New Playlist button.
On the window that appears, give your playlist a name and a description (optional) then click Save.
This will add the playlist underneath queue on the list to the left. Now you will need to browse for courses you would like to add to the playlist. You can use the categories on the playlist page or you can use the subject, software or author menus at the top.
Once you have found the course that you want to add to the playlist. Click on the small plus sign at the bottom of the course of the course listing and select the playlist that you would like to add that course to.
After adding all of your desired courses, click back on the My Courses menu at the top and select the Playlist you would like to share.
Once on the Playlist page, select the box next to share. This will give you options to email the list to others or create a link to share.
If you click the envelope, a window will appear where you can enter the person or persons email address you would like to share your list with. Please remember the person must have access to Lynda.com in order to view the trainings. All SCAD staff, faculty and students would be able to access this. You will have to manually type in the person’s email address as SCAD’s global directory is not available here.
The person will receive an email with a button to click on to access the list. Please note that the person will have to be logged into MySCAD to have direct access.
You can also share a link to the playlist. To do this click, on the link icon next to the envelope icon.
The window that appears will have a URL that you can copy to post or email to any SCAD users. Please use the URL in the first box for other SCAD users. Once again, the person will need to be logged into MySCAD to directly access the playlist. The second URL can be used for those outside of SCAD (assuming they have access to Lynda.com).
You can post this URL to Blackboard courses or MySCAD Department pages for reference.
If you have any questions about creating or sharing Lynda.com playlists, please email email@example.com.
