Lynda Tutorials

Carleton has purchased lynda.com subscriptions. All students, faculty, and staff now have access to hundreds of tutorials and thousands of videos. You can use it in your office or dorm room, in the classroom, at home, at the coffee shop, or even abroad.

Most videos range in length from 2-8 minutes. Although, most videos are a part of a larger ~2 hour tutorial. You can use lynda.com as a way to learn a lot about a software program or subject (Photoshop, for instance, or design principles), and/or as a way to answer a specific question about a particular application or subject (How do I format a table in Excel 2010?).
